EG.5 is otherwise known as "Eris", the WHO considers it 'of interest'.

Probably not particularly dangerous but will fuel a new wave, out of the usual season for that.

It's well timed for all the students returning to universities...

It's also well timed for all the people who'll be passing through airports this summer. I've already made one flight and I have another three to go.

Oh come on.

Increasing from tiny, to tiny and a bit.

The flu wave is what counts.
