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.

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.

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.

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.)
