This year's influenza strain is more dangerous for younger people.
This year's influenza or flu strain could reduce the wider percentage of the past two years, targeting young and average people in the region.
"From November 25th to December 1st, we had 45 people who tested positive for domestic health care facilities and saw a sharp increase in the number of younger people we usually see in the H-1-N-1 influenza A season, "The last two influenza seasons are a predominantly H-3-N-2 strain, which is more likely to target elderly people," said Karen Gudinson, Medical Health Service.
Domestic health recommends that everyone get flu, wash frequently and stay home if you show signs of illness. "This year the H-1-N-1 strain can have a dramatic impact on the workplace where younger and middle-aged workers are more likely to give up the flu shot." adds Goodison

The infection spreads when a person comes in contact with droplets of an infected person who coughs or sneezes. Symptoms of flu can include fever, pain, fatigue, headache, muscle aches, runny nose, sore throat and cough.
Anyone who is not influenced should wear a mask when entering the internal health.
