Not much going on in Southern California!

We have very low numbers of both RSV and Influenza circulating. Our current RSV rates remain below 10% (above 10% is considered endemic) and we have just occasional influenza. We have seen H1N1 influenza in addition to influenza B but at very low rates. The most common virus we are seeing in our testing is human metapneumovirus-approaching 30% of specimens submitted at some institutions!
Stay tuned!
