  • Georgia Week 39 +

    http://health.state.ga.us/epi/graphs...eport-2009.doc



    This seems to be the latest report I can find on the Georgia site but it might have moved. Does anyone have a later update than Week 39?

    Of note Georgia apparently "peaked" at the start of September and Google agreed. However for the last three weeks Google shows Georgia back on the rise again and there should be official data covering the start of that period by now so I'm curious to see whether the rise Google thinks is there is shown in the State statistics.

      That's ER rates though and we don't know anything about number of hospitals covered, percentages/areas of state covered, whether there's an age range bias in the reporting hospitals etc - I'd like to see the over-all state rate that's usually published and is what the Google predicted value is calibrated to.

        not ER-rates. ILI-data.

        BTW. look at Arizona ! Nicely down now.

        Indiana could also be peaking, it's not so clear, the next days should show

        Utah was updated, finally.

          Re: Georgia Week 39 (Anyone know of any later data)

          Here's the ISDS data on a weekly scale.



          If it is not turning back up it at least looks to be slowing the fall but, of course, we still don't know how representative this is of the state as a whole.

            It's the ILI data but only at Emergency Rooms at possibly as little as one single hospital in the entire state as far as I can see. It does not replace the normal sentinel systems but is designed to complement it so where is the last two weeks of official state data?

              ER = hospitalization ?

              or special doctors

                US ER rates are specifically people who turn up directly at a hospital's Emergency Depatment as opposed to visiting their own doctor. These rates don't reflect actual admissions to hospital which are charted separately but just the percentage of those attending with ILI symptoms.

                  So as far as anyone knows Georgia hasn't updated its statewide influenza surveillance report for the last two weeks?

                      Georgia's website

                      http://health.state.ga.us/epi/flu/fluupd09.asp

                      Weekly Influenza Surveillance in Georgia, 2009-2010 Influenza Update
                      For the latest Georgia influenza information, visit this site.
                      Influenza Activity
                      For more information regarding influenza activity levels, visit http://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/fluactivity.htm
                      Sentinel Surveillance
                      The Georgia Division of Public Health monitors influenza (flu) activity throughout the State with the help of volunteer sentinel providers (private providers, occupational health providers, student health clinics and emergency departments). While each individual case of flu is not reportable to health authorities, we monitor the percent of providers' visits that are for "influenza-like illness." When these begin to increase compared to background levels, we suspect that influenza is active in an area.
                      Syndromic Surveillance
                      The Georgia Division of Public Health monitors the presenting symptoms of patients visiting participating hospital emergency departments and ambulatory care centers throughout the State on a daily basis. These symptoms are classified into syndromes. When visits for "influenza-like illness" begin to increase compared with background levels, we suspect that influenza is active in an area.

                        Re: Georgia Week 39 +

                        Georgia is strange. Why were they ahead in the wave and
                        already 5 weeks post-peak now ?

                        did it start in Georgia and spread from Georgia to all the other regions ?

                          Looks like it has just been updated. The chart at the top of the thread for Week 39 was copied from the document I downloaded yesterday. It's only been updated to week 41 since my initial post.

                            No gsgs, it didn't start in GA. Schools in GA opened in GA earlier than the rest of the country

                            Many schools in GA shut (May) when the rest of the country was ramping up. So it quieted down here somewhat except for camps. But it "took off" in August when schools reopened. It was like the first wave was interrupted but finished in August. So, my theory is that GA is still apt to get slammed with what the rest of the country is getting.

                            I am a firm believer that the waves have a lot to do with schools opening/closing, and that they did in 1918 as well.
