A total of 66.8 percent of the patients are children aged up to 14, including 41.3 percent aged up to 4 and 25.5 percent aged 5 to 14.

The flu incidence increased by 15 percent year-on-year because of the cold weather. There are now more than 10,000 cases of ARVI in Bishkek, 60 percent of which are children-related.
