The Department of Disease Control (DDC) has reported a significant surge in cases of seasonal flu.

In 2023, over 970,000 individuals fell ill with the flu, which is three times higher than the comparable figures from the previous year.

Individuals who belong to the risk group, as well as those aged 65 and above, should promptly get vaccinated against the flu. Those who are sick must wear masks and be isolated from others.

According to the World Health Organization, symptoms of seasonal flu include fever, cough, headache, muscle and joint pain, severe fatigue, sore throat, and malaise.
Coughing can be persistent and may last for two weeks or more; most people recover within a week without the need for medical intervention.
