Situación: FluView semanal

Indicadores fundamentales de la influenza

According to this week's FluView report, overall seasonal influenza activity remains low across the United States, though an increase in influenza activity is likely in the coming weeks. People who have not already gotten a flu vaccine for the 2014-2015 season should do so now. Below is a summary of the key flu indicators for the week ending October 11, 2014:

  • For the week ending October 11, the proportion of people seeing their proveedor de cuidados de salud por enfermedades similares a la influenza (ILI) estuvo por debajo del porcentaje nacional. Las 10 regiones de EE. UU. informaron actividad de enfermedades similares a la influenza por debajo de los niveles de referencia de la región.
  • 49 states and New York City experienced minimal ILI activity. The District of Columbia and one state (Vermont) did not have sufficient data to calculate an activity level. Puerto Rico experienced moderate ILI activity. ILI activity data indicate the amount of flu-like illness that is occurring in each state.
  • Guam reported widespread geographic influenza activity. Puerto Rico and four states (Florida, New Hampshire, North Dakota and Virginia) reported local activity. The District of Columbia and 36 states reported sporadic influenza activity. The U.S. Virgin Islands and ten states reported no influenza activity. Geographic spread data show how many areas within a state or territory are seeing flu activity.
  • Data regarding influenza-associated hospitalizations for the 2014-2015 influenza season is not yet available for this season.
  • La proporción de muertes atribuidas a la neumonía y a la influenza (N e I) basada en el informe del Sistema de Comunicación de Mortalidad de 122 ciudades se mantiene por debajo del nivel de epidemia.
  • At this time, no influenza-associated pediatric deaths have been reported for the 2014-2015 flu season.
  • Nationally, the percentage of muestras respiratorias testing positive for influenza viruses in the United States during the week ending October 11 was 3.7%. For the most recent three weeks, the regional percentage of respiratory specimens testing positive for influenza viruses ranged from 0.4% to 7.3%.
  • Influenza A (H3N2), 2009 influenza A (H1N1), and influenza B viruses have all been identified in the U.S. this season. During the week ending October 11, 164 (58.2%) of the 282 influenza-positive tests reported to CDC were influenza A viruses and 118 were influenza B viruses. Of the 30 influenza A viruses that were subtyped, 93% were H3 viruses and 7% were 2009 H1N1 viruses.
  • No antigenic characterization data is available for specimens collected after October 1, 2014.
  • No antiviral resistance data is available for specimens collected after October 1, 2014.
