The Chief Inspector of State Health, Dr. Angel Kunchev, said an influenza epidemic is expected by January.
"And this year we could expect different pressures. Unlike earlier, when influenza viruses have always caused the epidemic, recent years have witnessed a parallel circulation of lineages B and A. It may also have made 3-valent manufacturers go to vaccines of 4 malts, in order to maximize the protection spectrum, "explained Dr. Kunchev to FOCUS.
He advises people who have a weak immune system and are often sick to be immunized. In his words, we should have two or three weeks before the virus is encountered so we can take the necessary steps.
