Flu cases 'almost completely wiped out' this winter in England, but COVID-19 continues to so

• Business Insider

As coronavirus cases continue to surge in England this winter, the number of people suffering from flu has plunged to levels not seen in more than 130 years, experts told the Sunday Times.

Medical experts said flu appears to have been "almost completely wiped out" after rates plummeted by a whopping 95%.

According to data obtained by the Times, the number of those who reported influenza-like illnesses to their GPs was 1.1 per 100,000 people, compared to a five-year average rate of 27.

The data comes from the second week of January, which is normally the peak time of the influenza season in which thousands of people are hospitalized.
