    Ministry of Education, Early Vacation Review

    2016.12.20 13:37:33

    As the number of children with KHNP increased to the highest level in history, the school decided to review the early breaks to prevent the spread of the disease. In addition, the benefits of antiviral (Tamiflu) health insurance will be extended to teenagers aged 10 to 18 temporarily during the influenza epidemic.

    The Ministry of Health and Welfare and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention issued a briefing on the situation on the 20th of the day at the government`s Sejong government office on the situation of 'response to the influenza nationwide prevention policy and the situation of the avian influenza (AI)

    The number of domestic seasonal influenza doctor physicians was 61.4 (preliminary) per 1000 people in 51 weeks (December 11 ~ December 17). It is a figure that exceeds 8.9 people per 1,000 people in the fashion standard.

    Elementary, middle and high school student age (7-18 years) The number of influenza doctor patients is 152.2 (preliminary) per 1000 people during the same period. This is the highest ever since the introduction of the influenza surveillance system in 1997. The number of students with influenza has risen to 115 per 1,000 in 2013 ~ 2014 season.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will only cover 30% of the cost of Tamiflu drugs while applying antiviral health benefits to those aged for a limited time.


    In addition, the Ministry of Health and Welfare is considering an early vacation if necessary to prevent the spread of influenza. In addition, we suspend schooling of suspects of influenza and conduct infection prevention education in school.


    The Center for Domestic Veterinary Administration advised that the current influenza A (H3N2) virus can minimize the complications such as pneumonia when treated on time. In addition, people who are recommended for influenza vaccination such as pregnant women are vaccinated, and students are not recommended for influenza vaccination.http://news.mk.co.kr/newsRead.php?sc...878332&sID=504
