    Re: NYC and NYS 2010-2011 Season: Weeks 40-4 (No New Deaths, Total 2)

    Week 4:
    No new death; total 2

    NYS:
    * The overall level of flu activity is currently high and appears to be stable when compared to last week.
    * The number of people hospitalized with flu is currently 295 and appears to be decreasing when compared to last week.
    * The number of pediatric influenza-associated deaths in NYS (including NYC) is currently 0 reported this week.
    * The total number of pediatric influenza-associated deaths in NYS (including NYC) since October 3, 2010, is 2.

    NOTE: Influenza B appears to be increasing

    NYC:
    During Week 4 (January 23-29, 2011), approximately 15% of all specimens tested for influenza were positive. DOHMH’s active laboratory surveillance system reported 280 positive laboratory results for influenza A, identified by rapid testing and 204 confirmed by viral isolation or PCR. There were 38 specimens that were positive for influenza B or 12% of the total positive influenza results. About 14% of specimens submitted for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) testing were positive. Subtyping of positive influenza A specimens has identified most as H3N2, although we are now seeing an increase in specimens identified with H1N1.
    Outpatient Influenza-like Illness Surveillance Network (ILINet)

    During Week 4 of 2011, approximately 2.7% of all sentinel provider visits were due to ILI. Starting in week 5 of the 2007-2008 season, these data reflect the inclusion of data derived from the syndromic surveillance system for emergency department visits. Our ILI rate is slightly above the Mid-Atlantic baseline of 2.4 and the national baseline of 2.5. Data have been received from 30 participating sentinel providers outside of the syndromic surveillance system, which includes data from 51 emergency departments in the City.

      Re: NYC and NYS 2010-2011 Season: Weeks 40-5 (No New Deaths, Total 2)

      Week 5:
      No new deaths; total 2

      NYS:
      ILI: just over 5%
      * The overall level of flu activity is currently high and appears to be stable when compared to last week.
      * The number of people hospitalized with flu is currently 308 and appears to be stable when compared to last week.
      * The number of pediatric influenza-associated deaths in NYS (including NYC) is currently 0 reported this week.
      * The total number of pediatric influenza-associated deaths in NYS (including NYC) since October 3, 2010, is 2.
      http://www.health.ny.gov/diseases/co...nce/2010-2011/

      NYC:
      Influenza activity has decreased in New York City over the past few weeks, while
      activity has increased in New York State and nation-wide. Influenza-like-illness visits reported to
      ILINet are at 2.5% of all weekly visits, which is above the Mid-Atlantic baseline of 2.4 but the
      same as the national baseline. Over one thousand patients have been hospitalized with
      laboratory-confirmed influenza since the beginning of October.
      One pediatric influenza associated
      death was reported during early December.

      There was one new known outbreak of influenza at a long term care facility this week, involving one resident.
      Since December 1, there have been approximately 41 known outbreaks of influenza A at long-term care
      facilities, with over 263 residents affected, 61 (26%) known hospitalizations and five (2%) reported deaths.

        All indicators in NYC are fairly normal for this time of the year. However, the rest of the state is experiencing a notable increase in %ILI and is well above baseline. If you go to the link for NYS provided by Missouriwatcher, you'll see the charts and if you click on the charts, it will take you to the data tables.

        According to this chart (which I believe includes samples from both NYS and NYC), all three strains are nearly equally present. See the note at the bottom regarding co-infection of influenza B and pH1N1.

            NYC:
            http://www.nyc.gov/html/doh/flu/html...lab-surv.shtml

            Although the %ILI in NYC does not indicate increased activity, the isolates chart suggests that there could still be another peak depending on the ratio of H3 to pH1 over the past several weeks. Flu B has increased and seems to be compatible with either H3 or pH1.

              Week 8 NYC:

              Nosocomial Respiratory Outbreak Reporting
              There were no new reported outbreaks of influenza at long term care facilities this week. Since December 1,
              there have been 42 known outbreaks of influenza A at long-term care facilities, with over 269 residents
              affected, 62 (23%) known hospitalizations and five (2%) reported deaths.

              (JimO comment - I had never seen this report from NYC before and they clearly identify 5 fatalities that are not included in reported pediatric fatalities. After looking back, I do see that Missouriwatcher had highlighted these deaths in earlier posts.)

                  NYC Week 8
                  ILI: 2.7% Current ILI trends are above the expected level.

                  Subtyping of influenza positive specimens at the Public Health Laboratory in February identified 41% as 2009 influenza H1N1, 32% as seasonal H3, and 27% as influenza B.

                  There were two new reported outbreaks of respiratory illness at long term care facilities this week, one of which was due to influenza A and the second one is still pending. Since December 1, there have been 43 known outbreaks of influenza A at long-term care facilities, with over 280 residents affected, 65 (23%) known hospitalizations and five (2%) reported deaths. Most of these outbreaks were identified based on reports of residents hospitalized with laboratory confirmed influenza. In most cases antiviral treatment and prophylaxis were initiated in a timely manner.
