Flu-like illness drop by 5%
by PIO release

Cases of influenza-like illnesses in the region have slightly dropped.

The Department of Health-Cordillera recorded 8,138 flu-like diseases from Jan. 1 to Oct. 6, five percent lower compared with the 8,538 recorded during the same period last year.

According to the Regional Epidemiology and Surveillance report, no death was recorded due to the illness.

Geeny Anne Austria of the DOH-RESU said there were 4,150 females who contracted the illness. The age range of those affected is from three days to 96 years old.

She said there were laboratory confirmed influenza cases in the different parts of the region and clustering was also reported in all the provinces.

Influenza-like illness, also known as acute respiratory infection and flu-like syndrome/symptoms, is a medical diagnosis of possible influenza or other illness causing a set of common symptoms.

Symptoms include fever, chills, malaise, dry cough, loss of appetite, body aches, and nausea, typically in connection with a sudden onset of illness.

In most cases, the symptoms are caused by cytokines released by immune system activation, and are thus relatively non-specific.

Among the causes are common cold and influenza, which tends to be more severe than the common cold while the other causes include side effects of drugs and manifestations of other diseases.

Austria urged the public to keep their immune systems strong by eating the right kind of food.
