In 28 (44%) cases the A / H1N1pdm09 virus was isolated, in 27 (43%) cases the B virus and in 9 (13%) A / non-subtyped virus cases.
    • Of the serious cases reported, 60% male, with an average age of 62 (0-94), 87% had at least one predisposing risk condition complicating the clinical conditions (diabetes, tumors, cardiovascular diseases, respiratory diseases chronic, etc.). Seven serious cases occurred in pregnant women. All cases were admitted to an Intensive and / or sub-intensive Therapy Unit (33 needed ECMO support and 165 were intubated).In 149 (47%) severe cases the A / H1N1pdm09 virus was isolated, in 4 (1%) cases the A / H3N2 virus, in 24 (8%) cases an A / non-subtyped virus and in 139 (44%) the B virus. More than half of the severe cases are caused by the A / H1N1pdm09 virus.

                    Since the start of surveillance (September), 744 severe cases of confirmed influenza admitted to intensive care have been reported, of which 160 have died. For the first time since the 2009/2010 season all the regions, excluding Molise, report the presence of confirmed serious cases of influenza admitted to intensive care. 90% of deaths (one of which was imported) occurred in people over 25 years of age. In 13 cases, the deceased did not present pre-existing risk conditions and 2 women were pregnant. In 78 (49%) cases the A / H1N1pdm09 virus was isolated, in 72 (45%) cases the B virus and in 10 (6%) A / non-subtyped virus caseDei casi gravi segnalati, il 58% di sesso maschile, con età media di 60 anni (0-104), l’84% presentava almeno una condizione di rischio predisponente il complicarsi delle condizioni cliniche (diabete, tumori, malattie cardiovascolari, malattie respiratorie croniche, ecc). Quindici casi gravi si sono verificati in donne gravide. Tutti i casi sono stati ricoverati in una Unità di Terapia Intensiva e/o subintensiva (63 hanno necessitato del supporto ECMO e 314 sono stati intubati)In 304 (52%) severe cases the A / H1N1pdm09 virus was isolated, in 214 (37%) the B virus, in 9 (2%) cases the A / H3N2 virus, in 53 (9%) cases a virus A / not subtyped. The collected data are used to estimate the number of severe and severe cases of influenza confirmed by age on a weekly basis and describe the clinical features of the disease. It is likely that the numbers provided are underestimated because the reported cases, 58% male, with an average age of 60 (0-104), 84% had at least one predisposing risk condition complicating the clinical conditions (diabetes, tumors, cardiovascular diseases, respiratory diseases chronic, etc.). Fifteen serious cases occurred in pregnant women. All cases were admitted to an Intensive and / or sub-intensive Therapy Unit (63 required ECMO support and 314 were intubated).
