    There is no flu epidemic in Kinshasa. The Minister of Health, Felix Kabange Numbi, stated Tuesday 17 February, while many cases of this disease are recorded following high temperatures. According to the minister, the DRC is one of the few countries in Africa which is a weekly influenza surveillance.

    Felix Kabange Numbi however announces measures to be taken by patients with this infection:

    "The first is to rest. Secondly, after we took rest, avoid cold drinks and instead take repeated hot drinks. And when you have a fever, just take a drug against fever, "he assured.
    "Safety and security don't just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear."
    -Nelson Mandela
