Health sources reassured that the epidemiological situation in the country is stable after the increase in the number of visitors to hospitals and health centers during the past few days due to seasonal flu infection. The majority of patients’ symptoms are mild, and there is no cause for concern, reports Al-Qabas daily.

The sources explained that the current period is witnessing an increase in the cases of seasonal flu infection as a result of weather fluctuations, change of seasons, the tendency by many to wear light clothes, the use of air-conditioning devices in homes, at work, and even inside vehicles, and frequent contact with people infected with respiratory diseases. Hundreds of citizens and residents visited health centers and hospitals during the past week due to symptoms that may be similar to those of COVID-19.

However, initial tests and smears proved that the COVID- 19 pandemic is receding inside the country. The majority of patients are able to improve their health with some painkillers and simple medicines. People who have taken the seasonal winter vaccinations have less symptoms of flu.

These vaccines are more necessary for children from ages to six months to five years, people over the age of 65 years, pregnant women, workers in health facilities, and those suffering from chronic diseases. The sources affirmed that COVID-19 is under control, and flu cases are within the normal rates in the country.
