REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, ATHENS -- The influenza virus is spreading rapidly in Greece this winter, with four deaths recorded so far, according to the Greek Center for Disease Control and Prevention (KEELPNO).

KEELPNO experts said six people had been hospitalized with the flu and were still under observation at intensive care units this week.

Health officials noted that the flu epidemic would continue to develop over the next three months and the number of severe cases was expected to rise.

Experts stressed that a mutated strain of the virus was not covered by the flu vaccine, but advised everyone, especially the most vulnerable, to be very careful and follow precaution measures, including getting the anti-flu shot.

Among the most vulnerable groups, the elderly population and young people suffering from cardiovascular or respiratory illnesses are most at risk.

According to KEELPNO figures, a total of 329 flu virus cases were treated in intensive care units last year, of which 145 resulted in death.
