In the Amur Region, three confirmed cases of influenza A “H3N2” were detected. This virus is called "Hongkong", due to an epidemic that happened in the administrative district of China of the same name. The disease has a severe course and can be fatal.

According to the regional department of Rospotrebnadzor, the Hong Kong flu was detected and laboratory confirmed in three patients who were not vaccinated against this virus. In addition, ARVI diseases are spreading in the region. To date, 1897 cases have been registered, which so far does not exceed the epidemic threshold.

In the framework of measures to prevent the spread of the virus, experts conduct enhanced control at checkpoints across the state border. Since the beginning of the year, more than 7,5 thousand people have crossed the border with China. Among them, persons with signs of viral or infectious diseases were not detected.
