gripe: actualização


Four countries are now reporting medium influenza intensity and for the first time this season one country, Portugal, has reported widespread activity with high intensity in week 51/2008. Four of these five countries are in Western Europe, most of the neighbouring central and Northern European countries as well as Italy are observing increasing ILI/ARI consultation rates whereas most Eastern European countries continue to report low influenza intensity with no signs of increasing trends. The number of countries with epidemic levels of influenza activity is expected to grow over the coming weeks. The overall number of sentinel specimens collected for virological testing increased during from week 50 to week 51/2008 as did the proportion of sentinel specimens which tested positive for Influenza (from 26% in week 50 to 33% in week 51). So far this season, the majority (97%) of H-subtyped type A viruses have beenH3. This observation consolidates earlier indications that the 2008-9 influenza season in Europe is very likely to be dominated by H3 viruses.

Cristina,
embora o vírus me tenha apanhado, (o malandro), juro que não entupi hospitais nem centros de saúde. Caminha, canjinha,´muita aguinha e uns antipiréticos, e tenho fé que está práticamente destruído, o vírus.:)

Aproveito para te desejar um Bom Ano 2009.

Beijinhos
