Over 300 people with flu-like symptoms have been reported in Macedonia since the beginning of January, Jovanka Kostovska - head of the Health Ministry's sector for preventive health protection - told Monday's press conference.


"It is also expected besides seasonal flu, swine flu to be also registered in Macedonia, since it has been already detected in Serbia and Kosovo," she stated.


More than 900 cases with flu-like symptoms have been reported since October last year. The number of cases is likely to be increased by the end of January and in February.

"According to the World Health Organisation, those who are most at risk from being infected with the flu are toddlers, pregnant women, people with weak immunity, chronically ill people and elderly people".
