<Anchor> For the
rest of the questions, I will examine in detail with medical reporter Cho Dong-chan.
Q. Is it okay for people who got the room temperature exposure vaccine?
[Dong-chan Cho/medical reporter (specialist): According to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the most concerned flu side effect is shock, and 80% of this shock appears within 15 minutes of injection, and other side effects appear within a day. I got it.
If you've already been hit, you don't need to worry too much.
However, for those who will be hit, the vaccine exposed to room temperature needs thorough verification.]
Q. What is the outlook for Corona 19, the flu, and the Twin Demic?
[Cho Dong-chan/medical journalist (specialist): What will happen if the first concern is the flu and Corona 19?
The second is that Corona 19 is also difficult now, and if the flu pandemic, it will be able to withstand the Korean medical system.
This is a CT picture of the lungs of a patient in her 50s who was infected with the flu and Corona 19 at the same time.
Fortunately, such cases are rare, so several studies show that the rate of simultaneous infection is less than 1% of COVID-19 patients.
Nevertheless, since the flu is similar in symptoms to Corona 19, it will put a great burden on diagnosing and quarantining Corona 19.
However, in countries in the southern hemisphere, which are already experiencing a flu epidemic, the number of flu patients has declined significantly from last year.
This is because I washed my hands well and wore a mask.]
Q. Can the flu vaccine help COVID-19?
[Dong-chan Cho/medical reporter (specialist): Although it has not yet been verified by peer experts, a research team at Johns Hopkins in the United States conducted a survey on more than 2,000 people. It turns out to be lower.
The research team explained that the flu shot activates immune cells because it helps protect against the Corona 19 virus, but the high-risk group should get the flu shot.]
Q. Is 30 million doses of flu vaccine enough?
[Cho Dong-chan/medical journalist (specialist): The health authorities have 3 million doses left last year, but this year they increased the 5 million doses, so it cannot be insufficient.
That means that 50 million people may want to be right.
In preparation for such a case, it will be necessary to think about the guidelines for who is better for our society among the general public.]
