The Life Insurance Market
Sickness insurance could become more popular among consumers as winter illnesses continue to do the rounds in Britain, and the search for a 'cure' for flu, goes on.
Seventeen people have died from flu this winter, including 14 from swine flu, according to the latest figures published by the Health Protection Agency.
Figures from the Agency released last week show just 40 per cent of people in 'at risk' groups under 65, are taking up the offer of vaccination.
Dr Catherine Hood is an advisor to an anti-viral hand sanitizer.
She says that people should still take precautions even if they get vaccinated, as the measure "will provide good but not perfect protection against influenza."
To prevent the spread of influenza, Dr Hood recommended that people wash their hands on a regular basis.
Sickness insurance would provide protection against the short-term illnesses like influenze.
