            Final Roundup for 2015;

            Flashback 2015 (Part 1) http://www.epid.gov.lk/web/images/pd...01-english.pdf
            Flashback 2015 (Part II) http://www.epid.gov.lk/web/images/pd...02-english.pdf

            This is the second in the series of two articles on
            the activities carried out by the Epidemiology
            Unit during the preceding year
            Year 2015 is a significant year as far as seasonal
            influenza was concerned. The country
            experienced a massive outbreak during the
            months of June, July and August resulting in 75
            influenza associated deaths and 14 maternal
            deaths.
            A health education campaign including
            TV spots, posters, road shows, lectures for
            health staff, publishing fact sheets on the Epidemiology
            Unit Website and distributing leaflets
            among general public on influenza prevention
            and control was launched. The circular on influenza
            prevention and control was revised to include
            latest facts on the disease. The high demand
            for antiviral (Oseltamivir) and personal
            protective equipment ( 95 N masks) was met
            without stock outs, while regulating it’s distribution
            by the Epidemiology Unit.
            Influenza surveillance system (ILI and SARI)
            was strengthened through continued services of
            surveillance officers (pre intern medical officers
            at SARI sites and the National Influenza CenterMRI),
            training staff at sentinel hospitals and
            maintaining adequate supplies of reagents for
            RTPCR at the MRI and visits to the sentinel hospitals
            by the Epidemiology Unit staff. The influenza
            surveillance system was critically reviewed
            by a team of members from the CDC Atlanta,
            USA.
