    Speaking at a press briefing at the ministry's headquarters, the minister said that his department has set up a crisis unit to monitor the epidemiological situation of the flu since 7 December, the date on which the first case of death was recorded.

    According to him, the rate of consultations for influenza is currently estimated at 6.5% of the overall rate of consultations, which requires, he said, more vigilance on the part of stakeholders.

    "This rate should not exceed 10%," he stressed, emphasizing the role of the media to alert citizens to the seriousness of the situation.

    And add that it is necessary to monitor the symptoms of this virus, especially among the poor categories including pregnant women, the elderly, children and people with chronic diseases.
