    All data are preliminary and may change as more reports are received. Synopsis: During week 7 (February 13-19, 2011), influenza activity in the United States remained elevated. • Of the 9,154 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, 2,866 (31.3%) were positive for influenza. • The proportion of deaths attributed to pneumonia and influenza (P&I) was above the epidemic threshold for the fourth consecutive week. • Six influenza-associated pediatric deaths were reported bringing to season total to 41. Three of these deaths were associated with an influenza B virus, one was associated with an influenza A (H3) virus, one was associated with a 2009 influenza A (H1N1) virus, and one was associated with an influenza A virus for which the subtype was not determined. • The proportion of outpatient visits for influenza-like illness (ILI) was 4.9%, which is above the national baseline of 2.5%. All 10 regions reported ILI above region-specific baseline levels. Twenty-one states experienced high ILI activity; six states experienced moderate ILI activity; New York City and 16 states experienced low ILI activity; seven states experienced minimal ILI activity, and the District of Columbia had insufficient data.
