HPS Monthly National Influenza Report - week ending 24 December 2017

Publication Date: 28 December 2017

ERRATUM: Please note that the text in the summary box for Excess all-cause mortality has been revised.

In week 51, overall assessment remains green - seasonal influenza is having a low/moderate impact on the population. There is some evidence of increasing secondary care pressure based on virological detections of influenza.

Community circulation of influenza prompted the issue of a CMO letter last week advising that GPs may prescribe antivirals.
