RSV Picking up in Southern California

RSV season has officially arrived. As you can see from the graphs below, the absolute number of positive specimens has picked up over the last two weeks and the percentage of positives has just surpassed the 10% mark (last week, 12%). We expect the trend to continue throughout the next few months and expect the peak sometime in January. As far as influenza, there has been very little influenza activity from all reporting hospitals and we have yet to see a significant increase in influenza like illnesses from reporting hospitals. Stay tuned.
