Health Advisory [27 July 2017]

            There have been Myanmar government and media reports on the outbreak of the H1N1 and H5N1 influenza virus in Ayeyarwaddy Region, Chin State, Yangon Region and Tanintharyi Region.  Both strains of the influenza virus are categorised under Influenza A, which is associated with annual outbreaks and epidemics.  Influenza is spread from person to person through respiratory droplets propelled by coughing and sneezing.  It can also be passed on through contact with contaminated surfaces.  In this regard, the common medical advice is to take the usual precautions to minimise your risk of acquiring these strains of influenza, such as practising good hygiene, avoiding crowded places, wearing a mask, and maintaining good ventilation in your home and office.
