Influenza appears in Hungary, while coronavirus is rampant

Portfolio
Nearly 12,000 people went to the doctor with flu-like symptoms in Hungary last week, but only six in ten of the cases tested were found to have the influenza A virus. Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) was largely responsible for the illnesses, the National Public Health Centre (NNK) reported on Thursday.

Based on reports from physicians participating in the surveillance service, 11,900 people consulted a doctor with flu-like symptoms between 10 and 16 January, compared to 12,500 people the previous week, the NNK said in a report published on its website on Thursday.

They reported that 19.3% of the patients who consulted a doctor were under 14, 38.2% were aged 15-34, 30% were aged 35-59 and 12.5% were aged 60 and over.

OUT OF THE 594 SAMPLES TESTED SO FAR, SIX (1%) HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH INFLUENZA A VIRUS, 132 (22%) WITH RESPIRATORY SYNCYTIAL VIRUS (RSV) AND 11 (2%) WITH ADENOVIRUS.
