President of the Romanian Society of Microbiology: We virus circulation of influenza type A – H1N1 and H3N2
President of the Romanian Society of Microbiology, Alexandru Rafila, Said on Monday Agerpres currently circulating in Romania, viruses & # 39; influenza A – H1N1 and H3N2, the most disease and, b & # 39; in particular, related deaths with & # 39; AH1N1 infection.
"We currently have nearly circulation & # 39; AH1N1 H3N2 viruses and, more disease and, more importantly, deaths have been associated with & # 39; infection & # 39; AH1N1. It's like a virus that circulating in 2009, when there was a pandemic of influenza, "said Rafila.
He noted that the epidemic is declared when there are three consecutive weeks of significant growth of flu, more than 20% more than the expected number.
"The epidemic is declared when there are three consecutive weeks & # 39; significant growth, more than 20% of the expected number of & # 39; cases and what needs to be added – we are practically at & # 39; very close situation & # 39; type & # 39; epidemic in the samples sent for diagnosis of patients with suspected influenza are more than positive 10%, we basically jumped 50% in the previous week. If this trend continues and likely to continue we can see an epidemic of influenza F & # 39; country, with nistqgħux precisely this moment, but as soon as being influence evolves this year, will probably have a few weeks b & # 39; very high number a & # 39; respiratory virus diseases in & # 39; country. in general, and cases of the flu in particular, but it must also be correlated with the possibility of more vaccine, "said a Rafil.
According to him, the European Center for Disease Control has made a few days ago recommendation, and indicated that vaccination can & # 39; continue for two to three weeks, because they still can & # 39; provides protection, even by appearance & # 39; protective antibodies have a long & # 39; about two weeks.
"Practically, until mid-February, we continue vaccination, but one thing everyone wants to know – the effectiveness of the vaccine decreases as departure from the best period, generally foregoing season & # 39; the flu, "ie, the months & # 39; October, November, even the first half & # 39; December, "explained the specialist.
Measures disease should be taken to limit including home insulation, wearing masks, hand washing, using & # 39; handkerchiefs disposable after use.
"The first measure is the insulation of the house and more severe cases & # 39; infected people in the hospital, regardless of the fact that we are talking about the flu or think it is another respiratory VIROSS. Please ignore are etiological diagnosis is made in all cases & # 39; is not done anywhere in the world, but it is important to be isolated at home. If there is a need for people displaced respiratory viral infection, then it is good to short life, avoid possible perhaps the use of & # 39; handkerchiefs and use of & # 39; mask is a good measure of & # 39; protection and to protect yourself individually to protect others in spreading & # 39; handkerchiefs disposable disposal. respiratory viruses, especially influenza, "said the doctor.
He said that at the regional level is medium to high circulation of influenza virus, and in Western Europe there are also countries with & # 39; increased number of & # 39; cases than in Romania compared to the population .
"We find ourselves in & # 39; area & # 39; average intensity of virus circulation & # 39; influence, but expect them to grow in the coming period." We see x & # 39; happens after the report to be made for the time that schools have already started, as I said, the collective are the first to shed viral infection. The epidemiological traġġ in school is more important, children with & # 39; respiratory sent home, "said Alexandru Rafila.
He pointed out that the flu is not treated with antibiotics. "Treatment & # 39; influence is either symptomatic, or in & # 39; most serious cases, medium or severe, you & # 39; increased antiviral drug, indicating that should only be on the recommendation of & # 39; a doctor because it is medicine that can & # 39; also side effects and then things must be properly evaluated by the family physician or infectious disease specialist, "explained microbiologist.
