Data and surveillance
Laboratory-based surveillance of seasonal respiratory pathogens is undertaken throughout the year to monitor trends and to detect when activity is higher than levels expected for the time of year based on activity in previous seasons.
Throughout the winter season, we'll produce regular reports summarising influenza and other seasonal pathogen activity to inform local and national planning activities.
- View surveillance reports from 16 March 2020 to present on the Public Health Scotland website
- View surveillance reports older than 16 March 2020 on this website (you will need to filter the publications – use the term 'respiratory' for newer reports or 'influenza' for older reports)
