The flu virus currently circulating in Portugal is said to be one of the most aggressive in Europe and is only comparable to the one found in the UK.

Portugal flu virus "particularly aggressive"

The AH3 virus is said to be particularly aggressive, and especially dangerous to the elderly.

Most recent figures have also shown more than 500 people died last Monday, mostly as a result of complications resulting from the flu virus.

This has been classed as one of the deadliest days recorded in Portugal the past decade.
