As we approach the three-year anniversary of the pandemic, we are now facing a seasonal influenza epidemic after two years without one. In light of growing concerns over the potential risk of a “twindemic,” the Republic of Korea is currently experiencing the first peak of seasonal flu and the overall pattern is quite similar to that observed before the COVID-19 pandemic. Notably, no sudden or early increase in cases has been detected, which is unique compared to other countries.
