   STRUCK DOWN The Aussie Flu has swept through half of Conor McGregor's family

The so-called "Aussie flu" is a particularly virulent strain of influenza A and is said to have triggered the huge rise in cases, along with an aggressive B subtype.

The first flu deaths have been recorded in Ireland as the dreaded "Aussie flu" sweeps the country.

The California Department of Public Health said that as of December 16, the date of its most recent report, it counted 10 deaths in its under-65 population.

According to the HSE, the people most at risk of catching influenza over winter are those aged 65 years old and older, children who suffer from chronic illnesses, pregnant women, people who are obese and those with lower immunity such as cancer patients. However, the HSE has now confirmed that they have been notified of a a small number of deaths - less than 10 - directly related to flu.

IMO member Dr Ray Wally says it is not too late to get vaccinated.

"You speak to people who've had the flu and know they've had the flu, been told explicity they've had the flu, they often find it hard to get out of bed, it's not an easy thing to do".

Nevertheless, doctors are urging people to get vaccinated, with Public Health England reporting that 1,111 people in England and Wales were struck down with it last week - a 156% jump.

McCollum scored 25 of his 32 points after halftime, including the tiebreaking basket with 56.5 seconds remaining in overtime. Bledsoe's 3-pointer with 10.6 seconds left brought Milwaukee within three before VanVleet split two free throws.

"Well that was a wild New Year's Eve", McGregor wrote. But a number of tragic deaths in Australia also showed how the H3N2 flu strain can prove lethal to healthy adults. Half the family hit with the Australian flu virus and some even left in hospital with it, ' he captioned a since-deleted Instagram post.

Despite the scary news, 29-year-old brawler Conor - who turned to boxing in 2017 to take on Floyd Mayweather in a Las Vegas bout - had some positive words in his Instagram post.

One of the most intense few days I've gone thru [sic].

He said: "I'll leave that with the rest of the bad behind me in 2017 and take with me the many great experiences I've had this year!"

The A virus has caused some of the worst outbreaks in history, including the infamous Spanish flu in 1918 and swine flu in 2009.

"Course this is definitely a weird place to get welled up with national pride, but something called the "Aussie Flu" managed to put Conor Freakin" McGregor on the mat. Big New Year's Eve party cancelled at the last minute and I am left shaking in bed the past two days.
