Answer(s):

What is Influenza or Flu?

Influenza or Flu is a deadly infectious disease caused by influenza viruses A and B. The flu can cause moderate to severe illness, which in some cases can even lead to death.

Influenza or Flu causes about 5 million serious illnesses worldwide each year and about 2.5 to 5 million people die.

How does the flu spread?

 The flu is usually spread through sneezing, coughing and shortness of breath.

If a person touches their nose or mouth after touching objects that have the influenza virus on them, it can cause influenza. In most cases, a healthy person can infect another person five to seven days after the onset of influenza, one day before the onset of influenza symptoms.

When does the flu spread?

Outbreaks appear to be exacerbated worldwide each year. Studies have shown that the disease is prevalent in the northern hemisphere from October to April and in the southern hemisphere from September to May.

Outbreaks appear to be exacerbated during October to April in the northern hemisphere of Bangladesh. But

Due to the weather in our country, there is an outbreak of flu throughout the year.

Why is the flu vaccine more important this year?

COVID-19 and flu are more likely to occur together this year.

A recent study found that COVID-19 and influenza co-infection are more severe than just COVID-19.

Also infections with influenza and COVID-19 can become very serious in high-risk patients such as the elderly, long-term patients with heart disease, kidney patients, diabetics, asthma patients.

The flu vaccine will not protect against COVID-19. However, being protected from influenza, fever and shortness of breath will be reduced. This will greatly reduce the number of flu hospital admissions.

So everyone, especially high-risk people, must be vaccinated before the flu season.

What are the symptoms of flu?

Fever (severe in most cases), headache, severe weakness, dry cough, sore throat, runny nose / runny nose, muscle aches, nausea and diarrhea may occur. However, diarrhea is more common in children than in adults.


What are the complications of the flu?

Pneumonia

Infections of other bacteria

Cardiovascular and respiratory

Deterioration of the disease

Inflammation of the middle ear

Fever

Death (usually elderly)

Are flu and common cold-fever the same?

Many of us think the flu and the common cold are the same disease. But the flu virus is completely different from the common cold-fever virus, which is capable of creating much more horror than the common cold-fever virus.


How deadly is the flu?

The flu does not cause any physical problems and goes away on its own. But in the field especially this disease causes serious problems. The symptoms of the flu are much like the common cold and cough. So many people ignore this disease thinking it is a cold-cough which can sometimes cause serious complications.


It is especially important to take precautions against the flu in the elderly (those over 65 years of age). Because studies have shown that most of the people who die due to the flu are elderly. In addition to the elderly, adults and children who suffer from respiratory diseases (asthma), heart disease, kidney problems are at risk for the flu. The disease also increases the rate of absenteeism in the workplace and students.

  1. Patients with asthma and COPD
  2. Patients suffering from heart disease, diabetes, kidney and liver problems
  3. Children especially those under 2 years of age
  4. Pregnant women
  5. Age of 60 years and above
  6. People with AIDS have much lower immunity
  7. Traveler to another country

Is Influenza or Flu Preventable?

  1. Living a healthy life
  2. During sneezing and coughing, the nose and mouth should be covered with a handkerchief / tissue
  3. Wash your hands frequently with soap or use a hand rub
  4. The habit of giving hands, eyes, nose and mouth unnecessarily should be given up
  5. Adequate care must be taken in serving the sick patient
