Health experts have warned that people can get both flu and Covid-19 at the same time, and the consequences can be deadly.Speaking at a media briefing on this year’s flu vaccine, Public Health England’s medical director Professor Yvonne Doyle warned that those at high risk of flu are most at risk of Covid-19, too.A new study funded by PHE found people infected with flu and Covid-19 at the same time are almost twice as likely to die as those with Covid-19 alone.With flu and Covid-19 likely to circulate at the same time this winter, experts worry the viruses could have a significant impact on health service demand, as well as rates of illness and death.They are urging people eligible for a free flu vaccine to get one. Related... All You Need To Know About This Year's Flu Vaccine The research, looking at cases between January and April this year, also found those with co-infection of the two viruses were more at risk of severe illness. Most cases of co-infection were in older people and just under half of them died.That said, the likelihood of a person getting both flu and Covid-19 seems low. Of 19,256 individuals tested for both influenza and coronavirus, 58 people were found to have co-infection.Overall, 43% of cases with both Covid-19 and flu died, compared to 27% of those who tested positive for coronavirus alone. One caveat of the study is that it used data from people who tested positive for flu and Covid-19 from January to April this year. Professor Jonathan Van-Tam, the deputy chief medical officer for the Department of Health and Social Care, said at that point, the vast majority of Covid-19 tests were not being done in the community, only in hospitalised patients. “There are multiple, plausible reasons why it’s a bad idea to have Covid-19 and flu at the same time,” he said. People who have both need to stay in hospital for longer, have a greater risk of dying, and studies in mice have also shown “poor outcomes”. Related... This Is How Covid-19 Is Spreading In The UK Right Now Prof Doyle and Prof Van-Tam urged those eligible for the free flu jab to get one. Letters will be sent out to people this week encouraging them to book an appointment, with extra measures in place to keep people safe.Dr Nikita Kanani, a London GP and NHS Medical director for primary care, said flu vaccines may also be offered in outdoor settings, such as car parks, alongside drive-through vaccine services. The UK has one of the highest rates of uptake for the flu vaccine and, last year, two thirds of those eligible for it received one.Its effectiveness was 42.7% last season, said Prof Doyle, noting that while it might not prevent all infections, it does “take the edge off” if you’ve had the vaccine and then come down with flu.In England, influenza kills an average of 11,000 people each year. Last year’s flu season was considered “medium impact”, with low levels circulating in the community early on in the season, yet an estimated 8,000 people still died from it. Related... When Will We Be Able To Ditch Face Masks? Prof Doyle said there is some evidence to suggest flu and Covid-19 might compete with each other, meaning those who test positive for flu are less likely to test positive for Covid-19. The PHE study found risk of testing positive for coronavirus was 68% lower among influenza positive cases.Some people might take this as a sign that you could hold out hope of getting flu and, fingers crossed, you won’t become ill with Covid-19 if you come into contact with someone who’s infected. But this heeds a strong warning from Prof Doyle, who said: “If you get both, you are in serious trouble.”This year’s flu vaccine will be offered to 30m people in total. The children’s flu programme has been extended to cover kids in the first year of secondary school, and the vaccine will also be offered to household contacts of those on the shielded patient list.Later in the season, people aged 50-64 years old will be offered one. As the symptoms can be very similar, people who experience signs of flu or Covid-19 should self-isolate. You should only request a Covid-19 test if you have a new, continuous cough; a high temperature; or loss of or change to sense of smell or taste.Related...

Keir Starmer will pledge to put patriotism and family policy at the heart of his “new leadership” as he pleads with former Labour voters to return to the party.In his first big speech since taking over from Jeremy Corbyn, he will repeatedly contrast his own style and vision with that of his predecessor, stressing he will head “a credible opposition” that will “take the job seriously” to regain the electorate’s trust.Wrapping up Labour’s online ‘Connect’ event that replaced its annual conference, Starmer will emphasise his record on protecting national security during his time as Director of Public Prosecutions.With a vow to create a Britain that is “the best country to grow up in and the best country to grow old in”, he will emphasise both childcare and social care as central to the party’s mission to create sustainable change.Starmer will unveil a new plan for a national strategy to close the education gap between rich and poor pupils, as highlighted through the coronavirus pandemic, enforced through an independent body like the Children’s Commissioner.The central message will be that Labour has changed under his leadership by offering a competent alternative to Boris Johnson’s Tories, particularly to all those voters in ‘Red Wall’ seats who abandoned the party and ensured its worst electoral defeat since 1935.“I ask you: take another look at Labour. We’re under new leadership. We love this country as you do,” he will say as he makes the speech in Doncaster, south Yorkshire, where Labour lost a heartland seat to the Tories in December.“Trust takes time. It starts with being a credible Opposition. With taking the job seriously. That’s what we will do.“So, to those people in Doncaster and Deeside, in Glasgow and Grimsby, in Stoke and in Stevenage to those who have turned away from Labour, I say this: we hear you.“My vision for Britain is simple: I want this to be the best country to grow up in and the best country to grow old in. A country in which we put family first.“A country that embodies the values I hold dear. Decency, fairness, opportunity, compassion and security. Security for our nation, our families and all of our communities.”That vision will include “properly-funded public services” and a “world-class education which unleashes everyone’s potential”.Starmer allies told HuffPost UK that the aim was to draw a line under the last decade of Labour under both Ed Miliband and Corbyn, shifting away from “niche” issues that obsessed party members but had no resonance with the mainstream British public.Climate change will dominate the speech, with the Labour leader calling for “a greener, cleaner and fairer society”, in which policies are judged by what they do “for the planet tomorrow”.He will also stress a rebalancing of the UK economy away from London and big cities, towards smaller towns like those which voted Brexit.Starmer will call for “an economy that doesn’t force people to move hundreds of miles from family and friends just to find a decent job..one that truly works for all regions and nations of this United Kingdom, with opportunity and security in every part of the country and at every stage of our lives.”On industrial policy and jobs, he will argue the way forward is “working hand-in-hand with businesses and trade unions” to create high-quality jobs.Unite general secretary Len McCluskey, is among those to have warned Sir Keir that he could “steer the ship on to the rocks” if he tried to ignore the Labour left.Related...

Pubs, bars and restaurants in England will be subject to a 10pm curfew as part of the government’s latest restrictions to tackle the surge of coronavirus.From Thursday evening, all pubs, bars, restaurants and other hospitality venues in England must close by 10pm, while food and drink outlets are restricted to table service only.It is hoped that the 10pm curfew – already rolled out across parts of the nation’s hospitality industry – will help prevent alcohol-fuelled breaches of social distancing rules and stem the spread of the virus while allowing the economy to recover.On Tuesday morning, the prime minister will hold a meeting of the emergency Cobra committee, which will be attended by the first ministers of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.At 8pm, he will appear in a live, televised address where he is expected to outline the government’s latest measures and set out further ways the country can confront coronavirus in line with the scientific advice.It comes after Britain’s coronavirus alert level was ramped up from level three to four – last seen during the height of the pandemic – meaning transmission is “high or rising exponentially”.The alert level upgrade was on the recommendation of the Joint Biosecurity Centre, which was agreed by the chief medical officers of the UK nations.Earlier on Monday, England’s chief medical officers Chris Whitty and Patrick Vallance warned there could be 50,000 daily cases of Covid-19 by mid-October and 200 deaths a day by mid-November if the current rate of infection is not halted.In a joint statement, the chief medical officers for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland said: “After a period of lower Covid cases and deaths, the number of cases are now rising rapidly and probably exponentially in significant parts of all four nations.“If we are to avoid significant excess deaths and exceptional pressure in the NHS and other health services over the autumn and winter everyone has to follow the social distancing guidance, wear face coverings correctly and wash their hands regularly. “We know this will be a concerning news for many people; please follow the rules, look after each other and together we will get through this.”The UK recorded a further 4,368 coronavirus cases on Monday – the second highest daily total since early May. A further 11 people have also died within 28 days of getting a positive test, however the real figure is likely higher because of reporting delays over the weekend. Restaurants, pubs and bars in parts of England’s north-east are already under a 10pm curfew and from Tuesday venues in the north-west will join them.A spokesperson for No 10 said: “No-one underestimates the challenges the new measures will pose to many individuals and businesses.“We know this won’t be easy, but we must take further action to control the resurgence in cases of the virus and protect the NHS.”Related...

The League of Legends World Championship kicks off this week, and teams want to look their best — so Korean side Gen.G partnered with famed streetwear designer Heron Preston for their new Worlds jersey. The all-black Puma kit was unveiled today, and it’s a relatively simple design, with Gen.G’s logo displayed prominently on the front and a retro-inspired globe on the back. Preston’s involvement is also hard to miss; his name is in big blue letters just above the team’s logo. Worlds is one of the biggest events in competitive gaming, and teams that qualify for the tournament typically create special designs for their jerseys.
