  • Flu on the wane but hospitals under pressure

    FLU is on the wane in Wales with the number of people becoming ill falling sharply, figures reveal.

    The flu consultation rate has almost halved in the space of a week but experts have warned Welsh hospitals will continue to be under pressure for another fortnight.

    And people could still fall ill as flu is expected to continue circulating in the community until early February, it has been predicted.

    A report published by Public Health Wales yesterday shows the flu GP consultation rate stands at 51.5 per 100,000, down from a seasonal and decade high of 93.
