Respiratory illnesses in China increasing due to known pathogens, official says


SHENZHEN, China, Dec 2 (Reuters) – China’s surge in respiratory illnesses is caused by known pathogens and there are no signs of new infectious diseases, a health official said on Saturday, as the country is facing its first full winter since strict COVID-19 restrictions were lifted. restrictions.

The surge in illness in the country where COVID emerged in late 2019 drew attention when the World Health Organization requested information last week, citing a report on clusters of undiagnosed pneumonia in children.

Chinese authorities will open more pediatric outpatient clinics, seek to ensure more elderly people and children receive flu shots and encourage people to wear masks and wash their hands, said Mi Feng, an official with the Chinese National Health Commission, during a press conference.

Chinese doctors and foreign experts have not expressed concern over outbreaks in China, given that many other countries have seen a similar rise in respiratory illnesses after easing pandemic control measures, which the China did so late last year.
