                  Re: Tennessee 2013-14 Flu Season Wks 44-03: 0 New Pediatric Deaths, 4 Total

                  Wk 02, ending Jan 11

                  Tennessee has received reports of 4 cases of influenza‐related deaths in children.
                  Note: MMWR/CDC reports 3 deaths for wk 02

                  The percentage of patients with ILI reported in Week 2 was 6.40% as compared to 6.62% in Week 1. To date, 246 specimens from Week 2 have been tested; 51 (20.1%) were positive for influenza viruses, all A(H1N1).

                  Correction of Week 52 and Week 1 Reports:
                  A system error in the creation of this report misclassified some Type A(H1N1)
                  specimens as A(H3) in recent reports' results table and graphs. Past reports have been corrected on our website; this report reflects the correct results.

                    Re: Tennessee 2013-14 Flu Season Wks 44-03: 0 New Pediatric Deaths, 4 Total

                    Wk 3, ending Jan 18

                    Note: The 1 death reported by the CDC this week was among the 4 reported by Tennessee last week.

                    Tennessee notes this week there is one pregnant woman among the moralities.

                    Higher proportion of flu hospitalizations among young:
                    Although overall influenza activity to date is lower than the 2012‐2013 season, CDC reports that between Oct. 1, 2013 and Jan. 11, 2014, 61% of laboratory‐confirmed influenza‐associated hospitalizations in the US have been among persons aged 18‐64 years. During a typical influenza season, the majority (50‐60%) of hospitalizations are in persons older than 64. This pattern is consistent with the 2009‐2010 season when this season's dominant H1N1 strain first emerged.

                    The percentage of patients with ILI reported in Week 3 was 5.34% as compared to 5.85% in Week 2. To date, 168 specimens from Week 3 have been tested; 24 (14.2%) were positive for influenza viruses, all A(H1N1).
