Flu on a declining trend, Sophia Chan saysLocal | 11 Feb 2019 5:13 pm
Hong Kong's flu situation remains at high level, but the samples testing positive are declining, the Secretary for Food and Health, Sophia Chan, said today.
"All the children, at least most of them, are now back to school. While the influenza situation continues to be at a high level, the trend is actually going down in terms of the number of samples tested positive.''
She said monitoring for outbreaks will continue.
"I also appeal to especially the high-risk groups, such as the elderly population as well as the young kids, to be vigilant about their hygiene. If they still haven't got their vaccination, please go ahead to have flu vaccines.''
