THE flu virus in Murcia has reached its peak and is now beginning to slow, according to the authorities.
There were 5,271 cases reported in the first week of February, twice as many as during the same period in 2014, which has resulted in extra strain being put on the health centre and the region’s hospitals.

The influx of patients has led to overcrowding in hospitals with reports that female patients at the Virgen de la Arrixaca hospital were being admitted to the new maternity wing to ease the amount waiting in A&E.

Of those admitted, there have only been two serious cases of flu reported.
