The Australian Influenza Surveillance Report is published on a fortnightly basis during the influenza season, typically between May and October. Influenza activity updates will be published outside of the seasonal period.
- Activity – Currently, influenza and influenza-like illness (ILI) activity are high for this time of year compared to previous years. At the national level, notifications of laboratory-confirmed influenza have increased in the past fortnight and it is likely these figures will be revised upwards due to backlogs in data entry. Influenza A was the most common respiratory virus detected in patients presenting with ILI to sentinel general practices this fortnight.
- Severity – There is no indication of the potential severity of the 2019 season at this time.
- Impact – There is no indication of the potential impact on society of the 2019 season at this time.
- Virology – In the year to date and in the past fortnight, the majority of confirmed influenza cases reported nationally were influenza A (87%). Where subtyping data were available, influenza A(H3N2) was the dominant influenza A subtype in the past fortnight.
