    Synopsis:

    During week 43 (October 23-29, 2016), influenza activity was low in the United States.

    • Viral Surveillance: The most frequently identified influenza virus subtype reported by public health laboratories during week 43 was influenza A (H3). 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 the system-specific epidemic threshold in the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) Mortality Surveillance System.

    • Influenza-associated Pediatric Deaths: Two influenza-associated pediatric deaths were reported that occurred during the 2015-2016 season.

    • Outpatient Illness Surveillance: The proportion of outpatient visits for influenza-like illness (ILI) was 1.3%, which is below the national baseline of 2.2%. All 10 regions reported ILI below region-specific baseline levels. Puerto Rico experienced high ILI activity, New York City and all 50 states experienced minimal ILI activity, and the District of Columbia had insufficient data.

    • Geographic Spread of Influenza: The geographic spread of influenza in Guam was reported as widespread; Puerto Rico reported regional activity; three states reported local activity; the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and 39 states reported sporadic activity; and eight states reported no activity.
