    Synopsis: During week 13 (March 25-31, 2012), influenza activity was elevated in some areas of the United States, but declined nationally and in most regions.

    • U.S. Virologic Surveillance: Of the 4,551 specimens tested by U.S. World Health

    • Organization (WHO) and National Respiratory and Enteric Virus Surveillance System (NREVSS) collaborating laboratories and reported to CDC/Influenza Division, 932 (20.5%) were positive for influenza.

    • Pneumonia and Influenza (P&I) Mortality Surveillance: The proportion of deaths

    • attributed to P&I was below the epidemic threshold.

    • Influenza-associated Pediatric Mortality: One influenza-associated pediatric death was reported and was associated with an influenza A virus for which the subtype was not determined.

    • Outpatient Illness Surveillance: The proportion of outpatient visits for influenza-like illness (ILI) was 1.7%, which is below the national baseline of 2.4%. All regions reported ILI below region-specific baseline levels. Six states experienced low ILI activity; New York City and 44 states experienced minimal ILI activity, and the District of Columbia had insufficient data to calculate ILI activity.

    • Geographic Spread of Influenza: Ten states reported widespread geographic activity; 19 states reported regional influenza activity; 13 states reported local activity; the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and 8 states reported sporadic activity, and the U.S. Virgin Islands reported no influenza activity.
