    Synopsis: During week 50 (December 13-19, 2015), influenza activity increased slightly in the United States.

    • Viral Surveillance: The most frequently identified influenza virus type reported by public health laboratories during week 50 was influenza A, with influenza A (H1N1)pdm09 viruses predominating. The percentage of respiratory specimens testing positive for influenza in clinical laboratories was low.

    • Pneumonia and Influenza Mortality: The proportion of deaths attributed to pneumonia and influenza (P&I) was below their system-specific epidemic threshold in both the NCHS Mortality Surveillance System and the 122 Cities Mortality Reporting System.

    • Influenza-associated Pediatric Deaths: One influenza-associated pediatric death was reported.

    • Outpatient Illness Surveillance: The proportion of outpatient visits for influenza-like illness (ILI) was 2.2%, which is above the national baseline of 2.1%. Four of 10 regions reported ILI at or above region-specific baseline levels. One state experienced high ILI activity; Puerto Rico and two states experienced moderate ILI activity; New York City and three states experienced low ILI activity; 44 states experienced minimal ILI activity; and the District of Columbia had insufficient data.

    • Geographic Spread of Influenza: The geographic spread of influenza in Guam, Puerto Rico, and five states was reported as regional; the U.S. Virgin Islands and 14 states reported local activity; the District of Columbia and 27 states reported sporadic activity; and four states reported no influenza activity.
