Risk of death more than doubled for people who tested positive for both flu and COVID-19, compared to those with COVID-19 alone.  

Dated: 2-Dec-20

Calling on all eligible people to get vaccinated against flu as research from Public Health England (PHE) highlights the interactions between Covid19 and flu, and the impact of co-infection on disease severity. 

The epidemiological study used national-level data to study 19,256 people who were tested for both flu and Covid19 from January 2020 to 25 April 2020. Those with co-infection were 6.43 times more likely to be on a ventilator or die, and 6.33 times more likely to be admitted to the Intensive Care Unit or die.
