Volyn region is on peak of flu infection again. During last week the epidemic threshold has raised in 20% – almost 11 000 people have already fell ill. Hundreds of them were taken to the hospital because of complications. Volyn regional laboratory center state that most patients are children. That is why many educational institutions are still on quarantines.

Speaking about Lutsk – schools and kindergartens are open here.

Doctors state that the best way to prevent illness is a vaccination, even in March.

However, Volyn locals usually ignore this procedure. Since the beginning of the epidemics, namely since October, just 2900 people were injected with a vaccine.
