Influenza: half a million Italians in bed for the holidays

December 28, 2013

(AGI) - Rome, December 28 - Here come the holidays and winter, with the usual timing, also the flu.

There are about 500,000 Italians stuck in bed with the virus between Christmas and New Year, with 150,000 new cases last week, according to data posted at the Higher Institute of Health 'by doctors' sentinel'.

As expected, the first cases were isolated a month ago and now complicit lowering temperatures and the holidays (with school closures and travel) has kicked off the official start of the seasonal flu.

"We are in the phase of ascent - said Fabrizio Pregliasco AGI, a virologist at the University 'Milan-but the real boom there will be' in the middle 'January to early February, when the three influenza virus quest' year 'hit' the beautiful country in the heart of winter. "

The figure of 500,000 bedridden because of the flu, Pregliasco keen to point out, 'and' a matter of estimation of new cases registered on the basis of the trend, which has so far not lived up to expectations. Certain number will have it early next week. "

The most 'affected by the virus so far were children, Pregliasco explained, "because' are those who have not yet 'experience' of the various virus and therefore with very limited defenses."

With regard to the most 'small expert warns against pulmonary forms, "however, these normal," points out. This year looks even Professor Pregliasco, "we are seeing the effects of a normal flu season, but that 'not' to be underestimated."

Beware then the season's greetings too warm, with hugs and kisses that can turn into 'evil' vehicles of transmission of the virus. Among the measures to 'dodge' the virus, also avoid staying in crowded places and the changes in temperature, since in the latter case, "the problem is not 'so much the cold as the switch from frost to an environment heated and vice versa without the necessary precautions. "

Another useful tip "although 'seem trivial - finally points virologist - and' the wash your hands often, practice underestimated but scientifically effective way to not get sick." (AGI).
