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 – Influenza and influenza-like illness (ILI) activity are low and remain at inter-seasonal levels. Rhinovirus was the most common respiratory virus detected in patients presenting with ILI to sentinel general practices this fortnight.
- Severity – Due to low numbers and the instability of data early in the season, there is no indication of the potential severity of the 2018 season at this time.
- Impact – Currently, the impact of circulating influenza on society is low.
- Virology – This fortnight, the majority of confirmed influenza cases reported nationally were influenza A (86%).
