                          machine translated;

                          Week 51 and 52 (15.12. To 28.12.2012)
                          Summary evaluation of the epidemiological situation
                          The activity of acute respiratory illness (ARE) has increased nationwide, the values ​​of the praxis index above the background activity. Changes in the calculated indicators of disease activity of the 51st to 52nd KW can observed a year between Christmas and New Year Change in behavior consultation with a general shift in favor of acute illnesses recirculated. The National Reference Centre for Influenza (NRZ) were in the 51 and 52 KW 2012 at 110 Sentinel submitted 34 samples positive for influenza (positive rate 31%). In eleven samples respiratory syncytial virus could be detected.
                          For the 51st and 52 Reporting week 2012 have so far been 388 laboratory-confirmed clinical influenza cases transmitted to the RKI (data 03.01.2013).
                          Although the development of the ARE activity in the 52 KW due to the annual observed effects turn of the year can not be conclusively proves the increasing for three weeks
                          Positive rate of the NRZ and the significantly increased number of influenza transmitted diseases at the start of the flu season in Germany points.

                          Acute respiratory disease (ARE)
                          The activity of acute respiratory illness (ARE) is the nation in the 51st KW 2012 compared to declined slightly last week and in the 52nd KW increased significantly. The increase is, however, every year for
                          observed between Christmas and New Year altered behavior consultation with a general due to shift in favor of acute illnesses. Thus, for example dates for visits for chronic diseases rarely agreed for this period, so that the reference
                          ("Denominator") to the number of doctor visits for ARE ("counter") is smaller than usual in relation.

                            The activity of the acute respiratory infections (ARE) is increased nationwide moderate and overlying the background activity. Changes in the calculated indicators of disease activity of the 52nd KW

                              Summary evaluation of the epidemiological situation
                              The activity of acute respiratory illness (ARE) is increased slightly nationwide.
                              While the values ​​of praxis index fell compared to the previous week, the values ​​increased incidence of consultation in all age groups.
                              The National Reference Centre for Influenza (NRZ) were on the 2nd 2013 KW at 119 submitted sentinel specimens 53 positive for influenza (positive rate 45&#37. Eleven samples were respiratory syncytial viruses are detected.

                              Influenza activity in Germany continues to rise. With the end of the school holidays in the next week to be expected to be more dynamic.

                              The activity of acute respiratory illness (ARE) is the nation in the 2nd KW 2013 compared to declined last week and is in the range slightly increased activity (Table 1). By a modified consultation behavior and reduced to practice opening times and conditional increase in the new year
                              praxis index values ​​for the second KW 2013 can no longer be recorded, so that the values ​​now probably due only to the increased number of doctor visits for acute respiratory diseases are (Fig. 1). This is also reflected in the increasing values ​​for consultation incidence (Fig. 2).
