Australian Flu Death Toll Continues to Rise

June 3, 2019

Flu deaths have claimed 35 lives in South Australia (SA) so far this year. SA Health has confirmed over 15,000 flu cases in 2019, compared to fewer than 1,400 during this time last year. But, this could just be the tip of the iceberg, according to Health authorities, since many cases continue to go unreported.

The aggressive flu viruses circulating in SA could potentially migrate to the northern hemisphere. A University of Cambridge article reported that "outbreaks of the most common type of influenza virus, A (H3N2), are seeded by viruses that originate in East and Southeast Asia and migrate around the world." Due to these global migration patterns, flu viruses can arrive in new locations within a few months.
