Dr Alan Hay, director of the London-based World Influenza Centre, said the extensive summer outbreak in Britain had not followed expected patterns and warned the Department of Health needed to be prepared for a more deadly form of the disease.
"We don't really know the way this virus might change as it adapts to the human population and what the consequences of such changes might be."
