TAIPEI (TVBS News) — As China sees an uptick in respiratory illnesses, Taiwan's Centers for Disease Control (CDC) warned on Monday (Nov. 27) that cases could peak around the Lunar New Year, and assuring that authorities are poised to adjust control measures in response to the unfolding situation.

CDC Deputy Director-General Philip Lo identified multiple pathogens as the culprits behind the respiratory disease surge, primarily affecting China's northern regions.

 

Lo emphasized that the spate of illnesses was not caused by a single agent, such as a mycoplasma organism, and presented a multifaceted challenge given its impact across various age groups.

Although mycoplasma mainly affects children, Lo mentioned that other infectious threats, including influenza and COVID-19, should not be disregarded.

In anticipation of increased cross-strait travel, Lo urged individuals, particularly the elderly and young children with weaker immune systems, to get vaccinated against flu and COVID-19.
 

He further recommended postponing trips if not essential for those considering travel to China as a precautionary health measure amidst the ongoing outbreaks.
