HPS Weekly National Influenza Report - Week ending 23 October 2011 27 Oct 2011

Week 42

This is the third 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 estimates of seasonal influenza vaccine uptake.

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 is currently low in Scotland, with the exception of rhinovirus and Mycoplasma pneumoniae which have started to rise as also seen in previous years.
