The National Institute for Communicable Diseases says it expects to see an increase in the number of yearly flu cases being reported this coming flu season.

Professor Cheryl Cohen, from the NICD’s Centre for Respiratory Diseases, says the isolation caused by the Covid-19 lockdowns, have lead to a decrease in the number of people being exposed to the annual flu.

She says there has already been a high number of flu cases being reported, despite the warm weather.
