Australia and NZ reported virtually no flu during their winter (our summer 2020). I think the theory was that the social distancing etc measures taken for Covid had a significant effect on the ability of the flu virus to spread.

Thank you everyone. Sorry been a bit AWOL but struggling a bit still. Sorry to hear about your losses HOD 🙁 and yes 1step2far people don't realise that the deaths aren't the full story at all.

Started to sleep a little bit better managing about 5 or 6 hours which is great.
Had a rough night on Friday and lost count of the amount of seizures I had (probably stress and tiredness induced) I still forced myself to go out for a walk with my friend on Saturday morning though and felt better for it. Rest of the weekend wasn't great but at least it started better.

I will aim to do better though. Plodding my way through each day as it comes atm and trying to avoid as much 'stuff' as I can

Thats good EB, glad you got some sleep.

HoD sorry forgot to reply. It's higher, and the long term effects are worse with covid. I'm sure I've seen other graphs but this is from office of national statistics: ons.gov.uk

I've never known ITU this full. Even in the worst NHS winters.
