Conor McGregor catches DEADLY Aussie Flu - UFC star left 'SHAKING' in bed

UMass researcher helps predict timing, peak of flu

A few months back, the first warnings arrived about the H3N2 virus (aka the "Aussie Flu") - which saw both Australia and New Zealand hit with their worst outbreaks on record - and that the virus would most likely make it to the United Kingdom, becoming the worst flu season on record.

"Well that was a wild New Year's Eve", McGregor wrote.

The MMA star took to his Instagram account to tell fans that he and his family had been left bed bound after getting the illness - with some of his family so bad they even had to go to hospital.

McGregor says that the family's big New Year's Eve party had been canceled at the last minute and he was left "shaking in bed the past two days".

While this year's flu season may not be the worst statistically, there are more cases than usual, and East Texas is one of the hot spots. I'll leave that with the rest of the bad behind me in 2017 and take with me the many great experiences I've had this year!'

Conor has been with partner Dee Devlin for over nine years and the couple welcomed their first child together, Conor Jack McGregor Jr., in May.

Government statistics showed 1,111 people were struck down with the disease as temperatures plummeted last week - a 156 per cent jump on the previous seven days.

Both defendants were arraigned in Troy City Court and remanded to the Rensselaer County Jail without bail. The family was found dead inside the basement apartment where they lived.

The "Aussie Flu" is a subtype of the strain of influenza A, called H3N2, and it has already been confirmed in Ireland, with the HSE reporting a small number of deaths linked directly to flu.

The Aussie flu affected 250,000 Australians last winter, with hundreds dying as a result of contracting the virus.

The H3N2 subtype of the virus has claimed the lives of under 10 people in Ireland so far, though doctors have refused to reveal an exact figure. During Australia's flu season, which ended in September, hospital admissions for influenza were twice the normal rate and three times the usual number of deaths were reported.

Some experts have warned this could be the most serious flu epidemic since the 1968 pandemic that began in Hong Kong and killed a million globally.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine every season.

Last week 522 cases of type A and 546 cases of type B were recorded in England and Wales.
