The number of people in intensive care with confirmed or suspected flu in England has risen to 460 – more than double what it was a week ago.

Statistics released by the Department of Health (DoH) on December 15 showed 182 people were receiving intensive treatment for flu.

As of today, there were 460 patients receiving the same level of care.
