Patients with influenza b relatively more, but the symptom is lighter, less number of swine flu patients but may be more serious symptoms. In addition of a small number of flu patients is the mixed infection of influenza a and b, there are some very individual cases, is urgent, the patient is sick become severe flu. So, this year’s flu case, everyone felt very obvious, attention is higher, our hospital including pediatrics, diagnosis and treatment of adult this pressure is bigger.

We give you advice is to wash their hands, wearing masks, ventilation, etc., which are specific preventive measures. Compared with those of vaccine to prevent protection are not as good as the effect of the vaccine, although influenza vaccine in all of our vaccine preventable infectious diseases among the effect is not like the measles, polio vaccine classic effect is good, to vaccinate every year, but relatively nonspecific measures mentioned above, the vaccine is still the best methods of prevention. So, we suggest the public, especially in high-risk groups, like children, the elderly, patients with chronic diseases, pregnant women should be vaccinated, avoid these people because the flu cause serious illness, and complications. Influenza vaccine inoculation is not high in China, the annual supply market with about 26 million, but only to more than 2000.
