Over the summer (weeks 21-39) an 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.
  • No laboratory confirmed influenza case with severe infection requiring intensive care management (ICU cases) was reported to HPS within the last four weeks.
  • One new closed setting outbreak of acute respiratory infection was reported to HPS within the last four weeks.
  • The levels of all seasonal respiratory pathogens reported through non-sentinel sources (ECOSS) were slightly increased and above expected seasonal levels in at least one week between weeks 31 and 34.
