HPS National Influenza Report - week ending 09 August 2015 13 Aug 2015

The period of intensive Influenza surveillance for 2014/15 has ended. This is the third of our monthly bulletin reports over the summer period. It provides an update on influenza and other viral respiratory pathogen activity for the previous four weeks. Over the summer (weeks 21-39) an influenza update report will be published every four weeks unless influenza (or other viral respiratory pathogen) activity increases significantly.

In Scotland, both clinical and virological influenza activity was stable and at low levels.

The levels of seasonal respiratory pathogens (respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), parainfluenza, coronavirus, adenovirus, Mycoplasma pneumoniae (MPN) and human metapneumovirus (hMPV), reported through non-sentinel sources (ECOSS), were stable and within expected seasonal levels. The levels of rhinovirus, were increased and above expected seasonal levels for three out of the last 4 weeks.
