    Viral culture: 1 influenza A positive, 1 influenza B positive
    The most commonly cultured strain identified so far this season at the MDH Public Health Laboratory is influenza A/H3.
    Since the start of the influenza season through week 18, there have been 3,087 persons hospitalized with influenza.

    Circulating Respiratory Pathogen Surveillance
    Of specimens tested by PCR from 3 outpatient sites for circulating viral respiratory pathogens in the previous 3 weeks for which data are available:
    17% were positive for rhinovirus
    10% were positive for human metapneumovirus
    5% were positive for coronavirus, of these
    67% were positive for coronavirus OC43
    33% were positive for coronavirus HKU1
    3% were positive for influenza, of these
    50% were positive for influenza B
    50% were positive for influenza A/H3
    3% were positive for parainfluenza virus, of these:
    50% were positive for parainfluenza virus 1
    50% were positive for parainfluenza virus 3
    2% were positive for respiratory synctial virus (RSV)
    Of specimens culture positive for a viral pathogen at Minnesota’s 6 virology laboratories during week 19:
    5 were positive for parainfluenza virus 3
    5 were positive for cytomegalovirus
    2 were positive for adenovirus
    2 were positive for respiratory synctial virus (RSV)
    1 was positive for influenza A
