CASES of influenza-like illness (ILI) such as Influenza A dan B have been on the rise in Penang since three weeks ago, Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said.
He said the rate of Influenza A and B cases are not included in the list notifiable diseases. However, since three weeks ago the consultation rate of these cases in Penang has been increasing.
“The situation (cases) is under control though,” he told reporters in Penang today.,
Meanwhile, the Penang health department in a statement advised residents in the state to always practise preventive measures against influenza, such as maintaining a high level of personal hygiene and adopting a healthy lifestyle.
According to the statement, various efforts to contain the disease are always being made to allow early preventive measures to be taken to avoid the risk of infection.
Recently, Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin was reported to have said that ILI cases in the country are currently under control even though several clusters involving boarding schools have been detected.
He was reported to have said that the public, especially parents, did not need to worry as the disease is a common infection and arises from time to time with patients just requiring monitoring and self-isolation. – Bernama, July 22 2022.
