B type influenza virus detected in Gwangju


The Health & Environment Research Institute said Thursday that it has found a total of 37 cases of influenza infection from November 1st, 2018 to date.


Among the total, 1 case was confirmed as B type influenza.


B type influenza virus is usually detected among infants and children and has two subtypes of Victoria and Yamagata.


Considering the influenza epidemic extends from December to April and the formation of protective antibodies takes approximately 2 weeks, the institute recommended vaccinations if one has not gotten a shot yet.


Seniors older than 65 and children aged between 6 months and 12 years old can receive shots at local health care centers or registered hospitals for free until April 30th.
