The blackpool outbreak has been blamed for more than 20 deaths in the UK, with a massive number of people infected with a new strain of the virus.
The city’s chief health officer has said the infection has affected a staggering 200,000 people.
The black pool virus has been the most dangerous in the country, with people dying and missing more than two thirds of their health checks, according to experts.
A new strain has been spotted in the water in the past week.
Here’s what you need to know about it.
The new strain was discovered by UK-based research group SAVIRIS, which has now confirmed more than 30 cases of the strain in the city.
Blackpool’s Chief Health Officer Dr Simon Hoddle said the new strain could be found in the waters surrounding the town of Blackpool, which is in the south-west of the UK.
Hoddle told the BBC: “We have confirmed a new variant of the black pool flu virus in Blackpool in the last few days.”
There are currently no cases of contact with water in this area.
“The UK is not seeing any new cases of any other public health threat.”
This virus is now affecting more than 200,00 people across the country and the number of cases is expected to grow by the day.
He added: “As we have not experienced any other strain of this virus this virus is not thought to be spreading to the water.””
We have not had any contact with the reservoir at any time this week and there is no risk to the reservoir,” he said.
He added: “As we have not experienced any other strain of this virus this virus is not thought to be spreading to the water.”
Blackpool has a very low risk of exposure to this strain of virus.
“We are not expecting any further spread of this type of virus in the town, we are also not expecting this virus to spread to the surrounding areas.”
It is too early to say how long it will take for the town to have no exposure to the virus.
“A spokesperson for the health department said the virus was currently spreading across the reservoir.
They said: “Blackpool and its surroundings are not a reservoir for any of the circulating strain of black pool influenza.”
So, the only people who can have contact with Blackpool water are those who have been confirmed to have been infected with this strain.”
The Blackpool NHS trust said the outbreak had affected 200,100 people, but no further details were available.
Health chiefs have warned that more cases could be in the offing.
In a statement, the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) said: ‘As with the previous cases, it is important that people remain vigilant to ensure they are safe.’
It is not uncommon for the number and severity of cases in a population to fluctuate over time.’
However, in this case, the incidence of the current strain has remained at the same level as in the previous outbreak.’
This is consistent with the trend of recent cases, which have been declining.’
Blackwater said that there had been no confirmed cases of infection in the area, which they called ‘safe and secure’.
The trust said: “It’s important to note that the infection in Blackwater has not affected the reservoir and is therefore not an indicator of other outbreaks of the new virus.’
The reservoir has been fully disinfected, and we are now monitoring the situation to see if the new infection will recur.’
The NHS said that Blackpool has had a ‘large number of infections’ since the outbreak began, with more than 2,000 infections reported since the start of the pandemic. More:
