Hong Kong enters winter influenza season

The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health has announced that according to the surveillance data as at January 6, local seasonal influenza activity has continued to increase and exceeded the baseline thresholds, indicating that Hong Kong has entered the winter influenza season. Influenza activity is anticipated to further increase in the coming weeks. All sectors of the community should heighten their vigilance and enhance personal protection measures against influenza.
The influenza season in Hong Kong usually lasts for eight to 12 weeks. Based on previous surveillance data, after entering the influenza season, the virus activity will continue to rise for a period of time before reaching its peak. Members of the public, especially those with higher risks of influenza infection and its complications, such as the elderly and children, should receive seasonal influenza vaccination as soon as possible to lower the risks of serious illness and death. High-risk persons should wear a surgical mask when visiting public places, and the public should also wear a surgical mask when taking public transportation or staying in crowded places. Persons with respiratory symptoms, even if mild, are reminded to wear a surgical mask, refrain from work or attending classes at school, and seek medical advice promptly with a view to lowering the risk of transmission.
​For the latest information on influenza activity, please visit the CHP’s influenza thematic page and COVID-19 & Flu Express. Regarding details of influenza vaccination, you may wish to visit the CHP’s Vaccination Schemes page.
We would like to solicit your support to disseminate the above information to your service users, colleagues, work or business partners so that they could adopt proper preventive measures. Thank you very much for your support.
