The peak of influenza comes late in Beijing as two viruses, which should have been inert, remain active in April, according to Beijing Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

The influenza reached its peak in the end of February, which is later than usual. At present though the activity of influenza virus has obviously declined, the influenza, caused by influenza A (H3N2) virus and influenza B virus, keeps extending at a low level, according to Beijing Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

The disease control center reminds citizens to keep good ventilation and clean fresh air as well as to avoid going to densely populated public places. When flu-like symptom appears, one should immediately suspend his class or work, avoiding contacts with others, especially family members. They are recommended to wear breathing mask and have quarantine at home.
