‘It’s hit them really hard,’ she added.

Langdon has so far managed to avoid the virus, probably because she received her flu vaccine last month.

‘I got the flu jab live on air when Dr Nick Coatsworth came into the studio,’ she said, adding: ‘It’s certainly paying off so far.’

Langdon noted how experts have said flu cases are running rampant after the virus was forced ‘underground’ for two years during Covid-19 restrictions.

‘Queensland is now offering the flu vaccine for free, which has left GPs scrambling,’ she wrote.

‘Hopefully they can get the supply issue sorted quickly.’
