It has been a while since I last had a weekly flu update post. Mainly this is because all is pretty quiet on the flu front. Last week gave a momentary uptick that suggested a possible second epidemic peak, but this week's data does not agree. The week 1 data (possible permalink) tested only 3,886 specimens of which only 139 were positive for influenza. Of these, 78 were H1N1 while another 59 had no sub-typing available (a possible maximum of 137). I'm still waiting for that second epidemic peak, but will be happy if it never materializes.
