      According to reports, influenza viruses are divided into four families: A, B, C, and D. Among them, influenza A is more common and is seasonally popular every year. The incubation period of influenza A is usually 1 to 3 days . The main symptoms are fever, muscle aches and headaches , and there are also some mild respiratory symptoms, such as cough, runny nose, and sore throat.

      "High-risk groups such as those with low immunity, those with underlying diseases, pregnant women, infants, and obesity should seek immediate medical attention without delay once symptoms of influenza A appear. However, some patients develop into severe cases due to complications such as pneumonia or aggravation of underlying diseases. A few cases progress rapidly and may die due to complications such as acute respiratory distress syndrome, acute necrotizing encephalopathy, or multiple organ insufficiency.

      It is worth noting that influenza A and the new coronavirus are both respiratory diseases, and the symptoms of infection are similar, including fever, headache, general discomfort and other symptoms, but the pathogens of the two are different, and the epidemiological characteristics are also different. The typical symptoms of influenza A are fever and muscle aches all over the body. The new crown may cause abnormal taste and smell. Some patients with the new crown virus may have symptoms of vomiting, diarrhea and conjunctivitis. These symptoms are relatively rare in influenza A infection. "The probability of the superimposition of influenza A and the new crown is very small. Even if it occurs, it is rare for non-high-risk groups to develop critical illness." Wang Xinhang said.

      Experts said that influenza vaccination is one of the most economical and effective measures to prevent influenza which can significantly reduce the risk of influenza and serious complications for the vaccinated. Influenza protection usually occurs 2 to 4 weeks after vaccination. It is recommended that the elderly, children, and people with underlying diseases be vaccinated against influenza in time.
      In addition, take daily protective measures
      Can effectively reduce the infection and spread of influenza
    such as
    practicing good respiratory hygiene,

    Wash your hands frequently, wear a mask,

    Avoid close contact with patients with flu-like symptoms,
       Try to avoid going to crowded places

      Pay attention to indoor ventilation,
      Keep your home clean
    During the interview, the reporter learned that many citizens will buy and take oseltamivir on their own to deal with influenza A. "
    Antiviral drugs such as oseltamivir are prescription drugs
    and should be used under the guidance of a doctor and
    should not be taken by themselves
    ." Experts reminded that people must pay attention to rest after being infected with influenza A, and it is recommended to gradually resume exercise after 3 to 4 weeks.
