    The flu has been raging for several days in the town of Mbuji-Mayi (Kasaï-Oriental). According to epidemiologist Jean-Pierre Sumba, this flu is manifested by fever, a little cough, tickling in the throat, fatigue and colds. Without giving the statistics of the patients affected, he affirms that it is the seasonal flu.

    “Certainly there are a lot of cases of flu lately, we observe them regularly in this way, that is to say that it is a flu, for the most part, which we call the seasonal flu. . This seasonal flu most often returns at such times. You will see that these times, we had too much rain. Now we have the heat which is excessive. Which means that it is linked to this change in climate, ”explained this doctor.

    Dr Jean-Pierre Sumba asks patients who present these signs to be consulted to find out if it is this flu or another disease:

    “But it is true that the COVID-19 is not yet finished in the world and that when one is much more struck down by the flu in this way, it would be better to be examined or to go to the structures closest to get the most details.
