In Belarus, the first cases of influenza of the new season began talking last week, but the laboratory, none of them have not been confirmed.

Currently, the incidence of ARI in the country is on the non-epidemic level and is due to circulation of non-influenza respiratory viruses.

According to the results of sentinel surveillance of the studied clinical samples from patients with symptoms of ARI and data diagnostic studies in real time, influenza viruses A and B were not identified. As explained Naviny.By Head of Epidemiology Department of the Minsk City Center for Hygiene and Epidemiology, Elena Fisenko, this means that the diagnosis of patients was made a doctor after visual inspection. In some cases, not even held a general analysis of blood.

"Meanwhile, the established clinical diagnosis of influenza is not always reliable. For example, in one famous case, to me, when it was clinically established the flu, in fact the patient was ill with bronchitis. The second suspect pneumonia ", - said Fisenko.

The specialist said that each case of ARI laboratory is not checked. This, by the way, do not do anywhere else in the world. We have monitored the situation on its own standards. This means that laboratories test for influenza all hospitalized with severe ARI. Also according to the rules that guarantee statistical reliability, selectively conduct tests and clinical specimens from outpatients. Analyses carried out a precision method, consisting in searching the genome of the virus.

"Even in patients with severe acute respiratory influenza virus not identified", - said Elena Fisenko.

By the way, and in neighboring Russia, according to Rospotrebnadzor, no epidemic, but sporadic seasonal influenza laboratory confirmed - from 0.36% to 0.78% of those surveyed. Allocation of cases of pandemic influenza A (H1N1) was observed.
In Minsk, the situation with influenza-related morbidity head of the department called the stable: "The incidence does not exceed the epidemic threshold."

Sansluzhba reports that over the past week in a health facility in Minsk on the SARS turned over 24.9 thousand people, of which 56% - children. The main causes of morbidity are respiratory syncytial virus and their combination with adenovirus.
The epidemic rise in the incidence and with it the flu expected in traditional terms - in January and February.

Ministry of Health has proposed to increase the time of pharmacies. Corresponding letter signed by Minister Vasily Zharko sent to the heads of state and private pharmacies. Work longer offered in connection with the beginning of a seasonal rise of morbidity of viral infections and the increased flow of visitors.

Prior to November 1, 2010 to organize the work of pharmacies in maximal extension of working hours, no weekends. In this case, the Ministry of Health also offers a "consider the possibility of pharmacies in the night."

Recall that in November 2009 during an outbreak of SARS and influenza, the Ministry of Health also appealed to the pharmacy with a proposal to extend the operating time. Then in the comments BelaPAN pharmacist a pharmacy in Minsk said that he considers it important not to increase the time of pharmacies, and to meet their orders for medications. That failure to comply with orders during the excessive demand for antiviral drugs in the past year has created a scarcity.

Physicians, in turn, is strongly encouraged to participate in the vaccination. Elena Fisenko noted that now for the injection of health - it's time. Immunity just have time to work out a possible epidemic.

Doctors stress - from 1970 in Belarus, while three circulating influenza virus, so during the season a person may recover three times. Universal means of protection against all types of virus is by vaccination because the vaccine include all strains of influenza. This year, according to WHO recommendations, all produced vaccines contain strains necessary for the formation of immunity against influenza A (H1N1).
