Acute respiratory infections and influenza
week 5/2013 (28.01.2013-03.02.2013)
Mild influenza activity evolves in local outbreaks (counties Constanta County, Iasi) and as sporadic cases in other counties, the incidence of acute respiratory infections was higher than the previous week, but complying with the expected range.
Evolving flu cases in both media formats and severe, mostly unprotected persons with influenza vaccine.
S 05 samples tested were positive week for flu in 26 cases.
Positivity rate for influenza viruses has the highest value in the age group 50-64 years.
For surveillance and early in the season until 02/05/2013 inclusive, were confirmed 67 cases of avian influenza (52 influenza viruses type A and 15 type B influenza viruses)
Nationally, the total number of cases compatible with influenza and other respiratory infections (85 898) is 8.2% times higher than in the preceding week and recorded compared to the same week last season (only 0.4% less) .
The number of cases of severe acute respiratory infection reported dropped to 18, compared to 25 the previous week.


28.01.2013-03.02.2013 week has been no death from influenza or severe acute respiratory infections.
Characterization of influenza strains isolated from patients indicates that they correspond to the vaccine and are sensitive to antivirals in use.
Until 03.02.2013 flu were vaccinated 767,374 people in risk groups, vaccine distributed by the Ministry of Health.
