Doctor in the House: Influenza and Respiratory Diseases

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. Influenza is back in the news and on our chat groups. Going by anecdotes and forwarded messages on social media, we appear to be looking at an influenza outbreak. However, the Ministry of Health has said that the slight increase in influenza-like illness is still within normal parameters. We check in with consultant respiratory physician Dr Helmy Haja Mydin to find out whether we should be concerned about the current influenza strain or the mysterious viral pneumonia in Wuhan, China.
