Dr Colm Henry - No flu season in Ireland

Dr Colm Henry, Chief Clinical Officer, Health Service Executive, was on the radio last week.

Apparently, there is no flu season in Ireland either. Incredible coincidence.


Go to 7 minutes in and listen for yourself.


It's remarkably similar to the CDC reporting flu cases were down 98% last year. Many other countries have also seen tremendous drops in flu cases.


Indeed, here in the UK, every year the NHS is on the brink of collapse from the flu, yet - they're coping remarkably well at the moment. So much so, that the Nightingale Hospitals seem to not be needed... Interesting eh, I wonder what could be causing this? Have a think and get back to me.
