The highest was at Prribaram, the lowest in Nimburk. Traditionally, the majority of patients are in the preschool age group, up to five years old, Lilian Rumlová, director of epizootic regional hygiene, reminded on Friday. The most significant increase was, however, recorded among young people.
Compared to the last two weeks, the number of diseases with the clinical picture of the flu has not changed: the incidence reaches six hundred thousand people, which is 0.6 percent of the total morbidity.
However, despite typical symptoms, laboratory studies have shown that the actual flu has not yet arrived. "Influenza virus is not detected in samplers of biological material samples," Ruml confirmed.
