From three to five million people are currently suffering from flu and as many as 650,000 have passed away, WHO says.

Considering that we are living through a high Covid-19 transmission time, “there is a risk that this so-called ¨double pandemic¨ could put excessive pressure on already overloaded health systems,” WHO added.

WHO strongly recommended global vaccination, not only for health sector but also for people at higher risk of suffering from a serious disease, including the elderly, immunosuppressed citizens with underlying chronic diseases, pregnant women and minors.

The international agency asked to take self-care measures similar to those used to fight Covid-19 such as to wear face mask properly, hand-washing, as well as social distancing.

Doctors “should consider applying early antiviral treatments to flu-infected individuals who are at risk of serious illness.”
