Influenza and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) healthcare data paused

We will not be updating influenza and RSV healthcare data for the next few months. This is because the systems used to report this data do not operate during the summer. We hope to resume updating this data in the autumn.

Other respiratory viruses

Last updated on Thursday, 13 June 2024 at 04:00pm

Other common respiratory viruses include adenovirus, human metapneumovirus (hMPV), parainfluenza and rhinovirus.

The healthcare data we have for other respiratory viruses comes from a sentinel surveillance system (a data collection method used to monitor trends). This means the healthcare data is not a count of every person being treated for the respiratory virus in hospital. Find out more about data collection for other respiratory viruses.

Testing

Adenovirus - weekly positivity of people receiving a PCR test

Adenovirus - the percentage of people who had a PCR test and had at least one positive PCR test result for adenovirus in the same 7 days. Data is shown by specimen date (the date the sample was collected).

Up to and including 27 May 2024

ChartThere is only 1 plot on this chart. The horizontal X-axis is labelled 'date'. Whilst the vertical Y-axis is labelled 'metric'. This is a black solid line plot. This plot shows data for Adenovirus. Specifically the metric 'adenovirus_testing_positivityByWeek' for the England area, along with the age banding of 'all' for the gender group of all. This plot shows data from 05 June 2023 to 27 May 2024. It rose from 2.06 on 05 June 2023 to 2.33 on 31 July 2023. It fell from 2.19 on 07 August 2023 to 2.05 on 02 October 2023.
