HPS Weekly National Influenza Report - week ending 23 April 2017 27 Apr 2017
  • This report provides an update on influenza and other seasonal respiratory pathogen activity for the 2016/17 season for the week ending 23 April 2017. For this season, we will provide a detailed influenza update report once per month with bulletin style weekly update 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.
  • In Scotland, clinical influenza activity in primary care is stable and remains low and clinical activity in secondary care continues to decrease. The reduced virological influenza activity continues to suggest that community circulation of influenza is also decreasing. Influenza B detections account for the majority of all influenza detections in non-sentinel sources.
  • The levels of rhinovirus and coronavirus exceeded expected seasonal levels while all other respiratory pathogens were within seasonal expectations for the last week.
