[Sianel Iechyd / Adroddiad Cynhwysfawr]It is clear that friends around me have been diagnosed one after another, and I have also started to show the typical symptoms of Wuhan pneumonia, but why are the rapid screenings all negative? In this regard, the doctor said that the flu and the Wuhan pneumonia virus are related to the respiratory tract virus, and the infection routes are similar, but flu usually starts with systemic symptoms such as fever, while the Wuhan pneumonia virus usually mainly focused on the upper respiratory. When the flu symptoms above are repeatedly screened negative, remember to discuss with the doctor, and the doctor will take the test.
Doctor Lin Zhiwei from Luzhou Ailin Clinic posted on the Facebook page “Medicine Wei You, Dr. Wei ~ Dr. Lin Zhiwei”, stating that in Taiwan, due to the popularization of various public health measures and epidemic prevention concepts, many seasonal epidemics of diseases and that was common in the past has disappeared There is silence; but recently, many patients with persistent high fever, body aches, and repeated negative screening have been seen in outpatient clinics. It was only after a referral or further examination that they found out they had influenza A.

Lin Zhiwei said that the flu and the Wuhan pneumonia virus are both respiratory viruses, and the infection routes are similar. Most of them are transmitted through droplets, contact, and even air in confined spaces; but flu usually starts with systemic symptoms such as fever, muscle. pains, Dizziness is manifested by weakness; Wuhan pneumonia usually manifests as upper respiratory tract, sore throat, hoarse voice, and nasal discharge and sneezing in the initial stage.
Lin Zhiwei said that although the symptoms of pneumonia and Wuhan flu are slightly different in the early stage, the final diagnosis still depends on reagent screening; currently, rapid influenza screening in Taiwan still requires medical personnel to collect and test, so reagents cannot be purchased outside; When the flu-related symptoms are repeatedly screened negative, remember to discuss with the doctor, and the doctor will take the test.
Flu death rate as high as 20%
Lin Zhiwei stressed that as a lung fight, the flu virus is not a mild virus like the common cold. After infection, there is a possibility of serious illness and death, and there are more complications similar to the new pediatric multi-system inflammatory syndrome/ AISC; Unfortunately, it develops into a serious disease, and its mortality rate is as high as 20% (compared to 6% of OMICRON).
Regarding whether there is a vaccine for influenza, Lin Zhiwei said that compared to the Wuhan pneumonia vaccine, the influenza vaccine is a vaccine with skilled technology, a long history and complete data. If there are no special contraindications, it is encouraged to give as much as possible; every year 10 After the month, the government will open public funds in batches according to age and risk, so that you can pay more attention to relevant information.
Lin Zhiwei said that flu vaccines are divided into chicken embryo culture vaccines (with a long history) and cell culture vaccines (developed in recent years). Among them, the cultured chicken embryo vaccine contains Gal d 2ovalbumin, which can cause severe allergic reactions. Therefore, if you are allergic to proteins or traditional flu vaccines, you can consider flu vaccines based on cells; and virus strains selected from cells It can be more accurate (compared to chicken embryo culture), so the protection can be closer to the germ line recommended by WHO. And at the moment, two types of vaccine can be given to groups over 6 months of age.
Lin Zhiwei further said that the Wuhan influenza and pneumonia vaccines are inactivated vaccines and can be given at the same time or at any time interval; if Wuhan pneumonia has been diagnosed, the Wuhan pneumonia vaccine must be given after an interval of 3 months from the date of diagnosis, while there is no limit to the flu vaccine.
