Pandemic Flu

Pandemic Influenza occurs when a new strain of the influenza virus emerges, to which humans have little or no immunity and which spreads to the majority of countries around the world. It remains a significant threat to the UK and planning at all levels is still ongoing, building on the experience with Swine Flu in 2009.
