NEW SET OF POLICIES APRIL 2023
Respiratory illnesses are a major cause of hospitalisation, morbidity and death in the elderly and are amongst the most common winter ailments. Ranging from a self-limiting, mild, coryzal like illness, such as rhinovirus (common cold), to severe bronchitis, bronchiolitis and pneumonia.
Those suffering from underlying chronic health conditions become more susceptible and vulnerable to severe disease. Vaccination provides the best protection against acquiring and spreading infection.
