Deadly flu on it's way to UK in coming weeks.


The H3N2 strain has already infected well over 100,000 people in Australia - making it one of the country's worst outbreak ever - and is now on its way to the UK.

Officials figures have yet to say how many people have lost their lives, but at least 370 deaths have been confirmed so far.

And the illness is thought to pose such a risk, the NHS is reportedly making preparations to deal with a spike in hospital admissions.

Health officials are now urging all eligible Brits - approximately 21 million people - to get the flu jab as soon as possible.

Symptoms of the H3N2 include a dry cough, a fever that comes on suddenly, a sore throat, runny nose, headache and muscle and joint pain.
