Making this flu is preventable and controllable
However, current CDC data show that this year's flu is not higher than the same period last year, and influenza is also a common illness in the winter without much panic. Let's take a look at how to prevent influenza by science.
The most effective way to prevent influenza is to vaccinate before the flu season. Doctors recommend that, 1-2 months before the peak of the flu epidemic, it is the best time to take the flu shot, usually in October and November of each year.
The second is to pay attention to daily care. Drink lots of water, wash your hands often, keep the air circulation indoors and try to get less crowded and airy places, and so on. Also pay attention to hygiene and prevent cross-contagion. For example, when you sneeze or cough, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or paper towel. After you find flu-like symptoms, stop going to school or go to work and seek medical advice in time to avoid infecting others.
Shao Changzhou, Chief Medical Officer of the Department of Respiratory Medicine of Xiamen Hospital, Zhongshan Hospital, Fudan University: Especially when you are sick, pay attention to your own protection.Use a mask to prevent dissemination to other people.
Gu Li, director of the Department of Infection and Microbiology at Chaoyang Hospital, Beijing: I hope everyone is not too afraid of the flu because most patients have a flu that is not very basic (sick) and is very mild. There is self-limitation (self-healing), after three or five days of clinical fever, cough discomfort (symptoms), basically a week may be good.
Beijing CDC: There is no EB flu in medicine
The science of influenza prevention, one more thing, is not to believe in rumors. Recently, some netizens have sent a message about the so-called "EB" flu, saying that the current flu is serious. If you want to avoid, drink plenty of water and keep the mucous membrane of the throat moist. Otherwise, the virus can invade the body in 10 minutes. The disease control department said that this is false.
The Beijing Municipal Disease Control and Prevention Center rumored that there is no EB influenza in medicine. EB is only a common virus, infecting mainly epithelial cells and lymphocytes in the human oropharynx and is characterized by swollen lymph nodes and persistent fever, not being highly pathogenic, infectious and difficult to treat. There is currently no report on the increase in cases of EB virus infection in Beijing. Everyone does not have to be an enemy. The so-called "ten minutes in the body" virus is not established, influenza virus infection requires a certain process, not ten minutes in the body.
Flu is a contagious respiratory disease caused by the flu virus. According to the National Influenza Center report, the major subtype of the influenza virus detected this year is H1N1, followed by influenza A (H3N2). A very small amount of both influenza B viruses can also be detected.
