Cases of influenza (flu) in Wales continue to fall this week, but remain at higher levels than seen during the last six flu seasons.
Influenza can be serious. Influenza is now circulating in the community, and it can be serious for some people, especially for pregnant women, those aged 65 and over, children, and people with long-term health conditions.
Influenza (flu) is now circulating across Wales, and the number of cases is increasing. The flu vaccine remains the best way to protect yourself against catching flu and vaccines are still available and offer protection.
With a recent rise in the number of recorded cases, Public Health Wales are reminding people affected by the flu to think carefully before seeking further medical assistance.
