    Health authorities fear the influenza season will be worse than normal

    Health authorities fear the influenza season will be worse than normal


    Royal College of GPs Medical director Dr Bryan Betty says they're starting to see the uptick of influenza and RSV cases.

    It's being seen in general practice as well as putting pressure on hospitals around the country.

    Betty says we hadn't seen influenza in the country for two years because borders were closed.

    He says with the borders open, influenza has now come into the country, and they think it's potentially worse this year due to lower natural immunity.
