HPS Monthly National Influenza Report - Month ending 25 December 2011 29 Dec 2011

Week 51

This is the third monthly report of the 2011/12 influenza season. For the forthcoming season, we will provide detailed influenza update reports on a monthly basis with bulletin style weekly updates in the weeks in between.

This report contains summary epidemiological information on influenza-like illness (ILI) and acute respiratory illness (ARI) activity, its severity and impact in the community and secondary care settings, and vaccine uptake estimates.

The GP consultation rate for influenza-like illness (ILI) has been calculated using a different method this season. Please refer to the technical document for further information on this.

Influenza and other key winter viral respiratory pathogen activity are currently within expected levels for this time of year in Scotland. RSV, rhinovirus and Mycoplasma pneumoniae are currently increasing as would be expected at this time of year. The levels of rhinovirus and Mycoplasma pneumoniae reports are above levels seen at the same time in previous years.
