Older people, children, and people with underlying health conditions are at particular risk and it's feared that the number of cases here could rise dramatically over the coming weeks.

There are concerns a new flu-strain could be one of the worst seen here in decades.

Public Health England reported a 156 percent jump in cases of infection as figures revealed 1,111 people were struck down with it last week.

The United Kingdom is now copping a full force blast of that atrocious and extremely risky influenza strain that swept across Australia this past flu season.

Dr Kevin Kelleher, from the Health Protection department, said: 'There have been a few deaths already, under 10 people have died so far this year. However, the HSE has now confirmed that they have been notified of a a small number of deaths - less than 10 - directly related to flu.

Experts warned to expect the worst outbreak in 50 years back in September as the NHS urged all eligible Brits to get the free flu jab - but admitted it was too late to tweak the strains in their stockpile.

The H3N2 subtype, which is a strain of influenza A, triggered two and a half times the normal number of cases in Australia.

People who fall sick with "Aussie flu" will suffer from typical flu symptoms but they will be far more severe.

The CDC recommends people at high risk for complications from the flu be treated with antiviral medications as soon as possible once they become sick.

But last week 522 cases of influenza A and 546 of influenza B were recorded across England and Wales.

McGregor says that the family's big New Year's Eve party had been canceled at the last minute and he was left "shaking in bed the past two days". Half the family hit with the Australian flu virus and some even left in hospital with it, ' he captioned a since-deleted Instagram post.

While this year's flu season may not be the worst statistically, there are more cases than usual, and East Texas is one of the hot spots.

Doctors in the United Kingdom have warned that it could be the worst outbreak of the bug in 50 years, as official figures revealed cases more than doubled in just one week.

"The UK are using the same vaccine that we used in Australia in preparation for their flu season", Mr Bartone said.
