    alert! Shenzhen has entered the influenza epidemic period, mainly influenza A virus
    April 09, 2023 06:47 Author of Shenzhen Evening News

       Shenzhen Evening News (Reporter Zhou Qian) Recently, the number of influenza visits in Shenzhen has increased significantly. In the last week (March 27-April 2), the influenza-like case visit index (ILI%) of the city's influenza surveillance sentinel units was 11.3%. The results of etiological surveillance showed that Shenzhen was in the epidemic period of influenza, and mainly influenza A virus. The Shenzhen Center for Disease Control and Prevention reminds that collective units such as primary and secondary schools and kindergartens are places with high incidence of influenza clusters. Citizens should do a good job of hand hygiene and avoid going to crowded public places with poor ventilation in the near future. Schools must pay special attention to influenza prevention.

       The onset of influenza is usually "acute". If you have fever (up to 39°C~40°C), sore throat, cough, nasal congestion, runny nose, headache, myalgia, and fatigue during the epidemic season, you should pay special attention. Influenza is easily confused with a cold, and a diagnosis can only be confirmed by testing, including nucleic acid testing, virus isolation and culture, antigen testing, and serological testing. Generally speaking, everyone is susceptible to influenza, but children, the elderly, obese people, pregnant women and other groups are more likely to become severely ill after being infected. Therefore, if you have a persistent high fever, accompanied by signs of severe cough, dyspnea, mental changes, severe vomiting, diarrhea, etc., you should go to the hospital in time.

       Disease control experts remind that flu vaccination is one of the most effective ways to prevent flu, and it is best to get it before the flu season. The flu vaccine can be given as long as it is valid, and the best time for vaccination is from September to November every year. It is now close to the end of vaccination, and the stock is limited. Citizens in need can make an appointment on the WeChat official account of "Shenzhen Health and Health Commission" or "Shenzhen Disease Control" before going to vaccinate.
