In the winter, Korean infections are caused by influenza (influenza), respiratory system diseases and Norovirus infections, and digestive tract infections.
◆ influenza A (influenza)
Flu – acute respiratory illness caused by influenza virus and is known in Korea from November to April. On November 16, the Department for Disease Control released the influenza epidemic and called for compliance with personal hygienic guidelines such as immunization, hand washing and cough behavior to prevent influenza.
Flu virus is characterized by sudden high temperatures, muscle aches, headaches, and respiratory symptoms, which are largely related to human beings.
◆ Vaccination is required to prevent influenza
The most important vaccination against flu is vaccination. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, even if a full-fledged epidemic has already begun, vaccination is needed to prevent the infection, such as pregnant women, healthy adults and adults.
In particular, high risk groups such as pregnant women, elderly, children and people with chronic illness should be vaccinated since the influenza pandemic increases mortality. In healthy adults, between 10 and 1 out of 10 people suffer from influenza. We advise that the infected person suffer from severe symptoms for several days.
If the vaccine is vaccinated, it can affect up to 50 to 90% of the flu and may even be easily overcome even if ill. In addition to vaccination, it is important to keep personal hygiene, such as hand washing, as well as when you are coughing over the slippers of your skin or clothing, and you can store coughing etiquette to close the nose.
Dr. Kang Sang-Yop, Chairman of the Korea Medical Research Institute, said: "Vaccination against influenza needs to go even abroad."
Influenza usually occurs in the winter, but the tropical subtropical areas of Hong Kong, Taiwan and South-East Asia are well known for local tourists. Do not worry about the absence of flu in the warm country, considering your summer.
This is very dangerous as it does not allow symptoms of influenza, it is accompanied by severe heat and severe myalgia, it is not easy to use medical facilities overseas and abroad. Therefore, it is not necessary to vaccinate against influenza before traveling, and it is important to keep infectious disease prevention rules when traveling abroad.
◆ Norovirus infection that causes gastrointestinal diseases
Norovirus is a source of food poisoning and enteritis. The prevalence of internal rhinovirus infections is from November to April and is compatible with the influenza epidemic. Since Norovirus can survive for a number of years at a minimum of 20 degrees and can cause up to 10 channels of infections, large numbers of patients develop after eating in a wide range of restaurants or community community centers.
Norovirus infections are often transmitted through food or water intoxication that is contaminated with viruses or in contact with patients. The cause of the disease is the increase in seafood, such as the winter oysters, such as drinking water in the corona or oyster.
Norovirus infections occur within one or two days after the infection, resulting in vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach. Prevention is good because vaccines or effective remedies are not yet developed.
Since Norovirus can cope with general disinfection, Norovirus may be used to treat chlorine disinfectants (such as lactose), kitchen utensils, kitchen utensils, etc. can be disinfected.
Norovirus infections are often a problem when traveling overseas. Norovirus is the most important and common cause of diarrhea and enteritis in the world as well as in Korea, so you have a risk of Norovirus infection, which you are traveling around the world. Special care is needed because cruise travel is widespread.
"To prevent the infection of the forearm, wash your hands after washing your hands or after cooking," said the PMU. I have to eat, "he said.
