Young adults suffer most with flu

23rd December 2008

Figures from the Health Protection Agency show that young adults are being struck down with the flu at three times the rate of their parents' generation.

In the last few weeks it has emerged that for every 100,000 people aged 15 to 44 in England, 54.4 of them have the flu, compared with 18 cases among the same number of people aged over 65. The overall rate stands at 39 cases of influenza per 100,000 people within the general population, said the HPA.
