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.
- Influenza activity is increasing in most of the southern and central regions of Australia while sporadic and stable in the northern regions of the country.
- While testing for influenza has increased over the reporting fortnight, respiratory viruses other than influenza, in particular rhinovirus, were most commonly detected by sentinel laboratories.
- Nationally, notifications of laboratory confirmed influenza B viruses have continued to increase over the reporting fortnight, however influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 and influenza A(H3N2) are also co-circulating in some parts of the country.
- Influenza-like illness (ILI) in the community was low and relatively stable this reporting fortnight, while ILI presentations to sentinel GPs were also low, but increasing.
- To date, the seasonal influenza vaccines appear to be a good match for circulating virus strains.
