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 has increased slightly in the last month, but remains at inter-seasonal levels across Australia.
- Detections of influenza B viruses have increased in recent weeks, consistent with the predominance of influenza B viruses worldwide currently.1
- Respiratory viruses other than influenza are more commonly causing influenza-like illness presentations to sentinel general practitioners, with rhinovirus and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) detected most frequently.
- There is no indication of the potential severity of the 2017 season at this time.
- To date, the seasonal influenza vaccines appear to be a good match for circulating virus strains.
