          Week 5: January 28 February 3, 2018

          The estimated influenza activity in Missouri is Widespread
          .
          During Week 5, a total of 10,550 laboratory-positive influenza cases (6,170 influenza A, 4,162 influenza B, and
          218 untyped) were reported. A season-to-date total of 79,362 laboratory-positive influenza cases (59,390
          influenza A, 18,906 influenza B, and 1,066 untyped) have been reported in Missouri as of Week 5. The influenza
          type for reported season-to date cases includes 75% influenza A, 24% influenza B, and 1% untyped. Fifteen
          laboratory-positive cases of influenza (eight influenza A (H3), four influenza A (H1N1), and three influenza B
          (Yamagata)) were reported by the Missouri State Public Health Laboratory (MSPHL) during Week 5.
          Influenza-like illness (ILI) activity was above baseline for both the Missouri Outpatient ILI Surveillance Network
          (ILINet) and the hospital emergency room visit chief complaint data reported through ESSENCE. The reported
          percentage of visits for ILI was 10.23% (Figure 5) and 7.56% (Figure 7) through ILINet and ESSENCE
          respectively.

          The ILI data from a small number of sites located in the Northwest Region of the state is
          temporarily unavailable in ESSENCE. Therefore, the ILI data for the Northwest Region should be interpreted
          with caution. The percentage of respiratory specimens testing positive for influenza in Missouri laboratories
          reporting to the National Respiratory and Enteric Virus Surveillance System (NREVSS) decreased during Week 5
          (Figure 6).
          One hundred and four influenza-associated deaths have been reported in Missouri as of Week 5.

          During Week 4,
          142 deaths involving Pneumonia and Influenza (P&I) were reported to the Bureau of Vital Records, resulting in a
          season-to-date total of 1,030 P&I associated deaths in Missouri.

          Fifty-nine outbreaks of influenza or ILI have been reported and seven influenza or ILI-associated school closures
          have been reported in Missouri as of Week 5.
          Influenza activity increased in the U.S. during Week 4. National influenza surveillance information is prepared
          by CDC and is included in the weekly FluView report, which is available online at
          http://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/fluactivitysurv.htm.

            The ILI data from a small number of sites located in the Northwest Region of the state is
            temporarily unavailable in ESSENCE. Therefore, the ILI data for the Northwest Region should be interpreted
            with caution. The percentage of respiratory specimens testing positive for influenza in Missouri laboratories
            reporting to the National Respiratory and Enteric Virus Surveillance System (NREVSS) increased during Week 6
            (Figure 6).

                    Summary:
                    The estimated influenza activity in Missouri decreased to Regional
                    .
                    During Week 10, a total of 2,004 laboratory-positive3 influenza cases (804 influenza A, 1,167 influenza B, and 33
                    untyped) were reported. A season-to-date total of 124,459 laboratory-positive influenza cases (81,836 influenza
                    A, 40,858 influenza B, and 1,765 untyped) have been reported in Missouri as of Week 10. The influenza type for
                    reported season-to date cases includes 66% influenza A, 33% influenza B, and 1% untyped. Eleven laboratorypositive
                    cases of influenza (three influenza A (H3), three influenza A (H1N1), and five influenza B (Yamagata))
                    were reported by the Missouri State Public Health Laboratory (MSPHL) during Week 10.
                    Influenza-like illness (ILI) activity was above baseline for both the Missouri Outpatient ILI Surveillance Network
                    (ILINet) and the hospital emergency room visit chief complaint data reported through ESSENCE. The reported
                    percentage of visits for ILI was 4.68% (Figure 5) and 2.85% (Figure 7) through ILINet and ESSENCE
                    respectively.

                    The ILI data from a small number of sites located in the Northwest Region of the state is
                    temporarily unavailable in ESSENCE. Therefore, the ILI data for the Northwest Region should be interpreted

                    reporting to the National Respiratory and Enteric Virus Surveillance System (NREVSS) increased slightly during
                    Week 10 (Figure 6).
                    Two hundred and nineteen influenza-associated deaths have been reported in Missouri as of Week 10.

                    During
                    Week 9, 79 deaths involving Pneumonia and Influenza (P&I) were reported to the Bureau of Vital Records,

                        Week 13: March 25 31, 2018
                        All data are preliminary and may change as more reports are received.
                        Summary:
                        The estimated influenza activity in Missouri is Regional2
                        .
                        During Week 13, a total of 752 laboratory-positive3 influenza cases (254 influenza A, 486 influenza B, and 12
                        untyped) were reported. A season-to-date total of 131,417 laboratory-positive influenza cases (84,505 influenza
                        A, 45,032 influenza B, and 1,880 untyped) have been reported in Missouri as of Week 13. The influenza type for
                        reported season-to date cases includes 65% influenza A, 34% influenza B, and 1% untyped. Thirteen laboratorypositive
                        cases of influenza (four influenza A (H3), six influenza A (H1N1), one influenza B (Yamagata), and two
                        influenza B (Victoria)) were reported by the Missouri State Public Health Laboratory (MSPHL) during Week 13.
                        Influenza-like illness (ILI) activity was below baseline for both the Missouri Outpatient ILI Surveillance Network
                        (ILINet) and the hospital emergency room visit chief complaint data reported through ESSENCE. The reported
                        percentage of visits for ILI was 1.34% (Figure 5) and 1.76% (Figure 7) through ILINet and ESSENCE
                        respectively.

                        The ILI data from a small number of sites located in the Northwest Region of the state is
                        temporarily unavailable in ESSENCE. Therefore, the ILI data for the Northwest Region should be interpreted
                        with caution. The percentage of respiratory specimens testing positive for influenza in Missouri laboratories
                        reporting to the National Respiratory and Enteric Virus Surveillance System (NREVSS) decreased during Week
                        13 (Figure 6).
                        Two hundred and sixty influenza-associated deaths have been reported in Missouri as of Week 13.
                        During Week

                        12, 59 deaths involving Pneumonia and Influenza (P&I) were reported to the Bureau of Vital Records, resulting in
                        a season-to-date total of 1,677 P&I associated deaths in Missouri.

                        Sixty-seven outbreaks of influenza or ILI have been reported and 15 influenza or ILI-associated school closures
                        have been reported in Missouri as of Week 13.
                        Influenza activity decreased in the U.S. during Week 12. National influenza surveillance information is prepared
                        by CDC and is included in the weekly FluView report, which is available online

                          reported season-to date cases includes 64% influenza A, 35% influenza B, and 1% untyped. Nine laboratorypositive
                          cases of influenza (four influenza A (H1N1) and five influenza B (Yamagata)) were reported by the
                          Missouri State Public Health Laboratory (MSPHL) during Week 14.
                          Influenza-like illness (ILI) activity was below baseline for both the Missouri Outpatient ILI Surveillance Network
