ABSTRACT

We conducted a questionnaire survey on the implementation of appropriate infection control measures during the 2018/2019 influenza season. It was conducted among 100 patients (collection rate 52%) diagnosed with influenza in our hospital during the season. At the time of diagnosis, 49% of the patients were not taking appropriate measures, which was more common in the elderly and mildly ill patients. Forty-four percent of patients who were aware of the possibility of influenza at the time of their visit were not taking appropriate measures. Because COVID-19, which is spread by the almost same route of infection as influenza, is widespread, it is important to raise awareness of the need for appropriate infection control measures.
