Preparing for Winter

Prepare for Winter Respiratory Virus's with Dulwich Health

As we gear up for the 2023 fall and winter seasons, it’s crucial to acknowledge the growing complexity of respiratory viruses. Alongside the seasonal influenza virus (flu) and the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), COVID-19 has become an integral part of this yearly challenge. The Centre for Forecasting and Outbreak Analytics confirms that the inclusion of a third virus capable of causing severe illness significantly strains our healthcare system, even during an average respiratory season.

Traditionally, autumn and winter mark a surge in respiratory diseases. Before COVID-19, flu and RSV were the primary culprits behind severe respiratory ailments during this period. While some individuals experience mild symptoms when infected, others face hospitalization due to the severity of the illness. Each season’s severity depends on the circulating virus strains and our immunity to them. Hospitalization rates serve as a gauge for the season’s intensity, as these incidents exert immense pressure on healthcare services.

NHS’s projections for this year echo similarities to the previous one in terms of total hospitalizations resulting from COVID-19, RSV, and flu. This anticipation aligns with the heightened hospitalization rates experienced post the pre-COVID era. At present, flu activity across the UK remains low. However, forecasts predict a probable increase in flu cases over the impending winter months.
