Since the start of this year, the number of visits to fever clinics across the country has shown fluctuations but has a consistent downward trend, the health authority said on Sunday. Medical services are provided in a stable and well-organized way, said Mi Feng, spokesperson for the National Health Commission.

Currently, among respiratory diseases, influenza remains predominant while the infection levels of the novel coronavirus are at a relatively low level, Mi said.

"As the Spring Festival holiday approaches, the potential for large-scale population movement and gatherings poses an increased risk of respiratory disease transmission," he said.

He urged for effective monitoring and early warning systems and better management at key locations.

Timely health consultations and guidance will be provided to vulnerable groups, including the elderly, pregnant women, children and those with chronic existing health conditions, he said.

Convenient conditions for vaccine administration will also be ensured for these populations, he said.
