Ministry of Health
Dubai - Wam

As part of its strategy to provide a comprehensive and integrated health care in an innovative and sustainable environment to ensure community wellness, the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHAP) assured the community that with starting of the influenza season, the recorded cases are among the expected at this time of the year and there is no unexpected increase in the numbers reported at the country level.

MOHAP works with local health entities to strengthen national influenza response capacities including diagnostics, antiviral susceptibility monitoring, disease surveillance and outbreak responses, and to increase vaccine coverage among high-risk groups, the ministry said in a press statement on Monday.

Influenza is a contagious disease that affects the respiratory system in humans due to influenza virus which affects all age groups. The illness can vary from light to severe flu infection. The most common symptoms are rise in body temperature (fever), Coughing (usually dry), Body aches, and sometimes vomiting or diarrhea in some people, especially children.

Seasonal flu spreads easily through the inhalation of droplets that carry the virus, from coughing or sneezing; or when touching surfaces contaminated by the flu virus and then touching the eyes, nose or mouth. The duration of the infection varies from one day before the onset of symptoms to 5-7 days after the onset, and this period can last longer in children and people with weak immune system.

Most patients recover from fever and other symptoms within one week without the need for medical intervention. Taking available anti-viral drugs helps preventing the complications and treatment is most effective if taken in a timely manner within 48-72 hours from starting the symptoms.

To prevent the spread of infection in the community, the Ministry recommends following cough etiquette that is covering the nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing, and regularly washing hands.

The best way to prevent the disease and its serious complications is to get seasonal influenza vaccination every year. It is recommended for all, especially for those who are at higher risk of complications and they are people with chronic diseases, weak immune system, people 65 years of age and above, children under 5 years of age, especially under 2 years of age, pregnant women and health care workers. The vaccination is available in the health centers of the ministry, local health entities and in the private health sector.
