According to her, in recent weeks, the number of countries reporting the outbreak has risen in the European region. 15 countries, including Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Great Britain, Estonia, Lithuania and others, reported sporadic flu outbreaks. Some countries, such as the United Kingdom and the Czech Republic, have reported some hospitalized patients with laboratory-confirmed influenza, including those in intensive care units.

SPKC specialists recalled that it is advisable to choose a specific influenza prevention – vaccination when approaching the flu season. "This period, before the widespread spread of flu has started, is best suited to the vaccination," said Arja.

She explained that vaccination reduces the risk of hospitalization and serious complications of influenza, which is most susceptible to risky groups – young children, pregnant women, people with chronic illness and those over 65 years of age.

At the same time, as the flu season approaches, experts invite people to frequently wash their hands, to clean the air clean and to limit contact with sick people.
