Respiratory Viruses on the Decline

Over the last 2 weeks the numbers of RSV isolates have significantly declined, well below epidemic levels. Interestingly, the week ending April 1st, showed more Influenza B isolates than RSV! Rotavirus is still around but in very low numbers from all sites. We will continue reporting respiratory viral isolates over the next month, but expect them continue to show low numbers. Over the summer months we will look into reporting of other interesting viruses including West Nile Virus and Enterovirus.
