              Influenza Report
              The report was published on 8 January 2015 and reported flu situation Week 1 (29 / 12-14 - 4 / 1-15).
              Summary week 1, 2015
              Influenza activity has increased in recent weeks and flu season is now up and running. Influenza activity is however low and only a small percentage of influenza samples are positive. Experience from previous seasons shows that the increase in influenza activity often slows down during the Christmas holidays, but then tend to pick up again when many return to work and school. Therefore, we can expect an increase in influenza activity in the coming weeks.

                            Influenza Report

                            This report was published February 26, 2015 and reports the flu situation Week 8 (16-22 / 2).


                            Summary weeks 8, 2015

                            Influenza activity remained at a high level, but the increase appears to have slowed down. During week 8 were reported more laboratory-confirmed cases than the peak week during the season 2011-2012 and 2012-2013. The increase in the number of cases of influenza A (H3N2) has declined while the number of cases of influenza B continues to increase. A similar trend is also seen in the rest of Europe and North America. This week's report includes a special section on WHO's recommendation on next season's vaccine strains.
