Australian Influenza Activity Update - week ending 27 March 2015
- Australia is currently in the inter-seasonal period for influenza, with overall influenza activity at low levels but showing some increase.
- Influenza activity across jurisdictions is variable, with activity in eastern seaboard states and South Australia at levels higher than the same time last year.
- Nationally, influenza A is the predominant circulating virus type; of those viruses where subtyping data are available, influenza A(H3N2) is most common.
- The majority of influenza viruses circulating in Australia appear to be a good match with the 2015 seasonal influenza vaccine.
- Influenza-like illness (ILI) levels detected through the sentinel GP ILI surveillance system remains low. Currently, rhinovirus infection is the most common cause of ILI detected.
