Influenza surveillance in Europe: comparing intensity levels calculated using the moving epidemic method.

Vega T, Lozano JE, Meerhoff T, Snacken R, Beauté J, Jorgensen P, Ortiz de Lejarazu R, Domegan L, Mossong J, Nielsen J, Born R, Larrauri A, Brown C - Influenza Other Respir Viruses (2015)

Bottom Line: The intensity of 2013/2014 season is described and compared by country.Comparing intensity among seasons or countries is essential for understanding patterns in seasonal epidemics.An automated standardized model for comparison should be implemented at national and international levels.

MEM graph model with epidemic and intensity thresholds, intensity levels, and the weekly ILI/ARI rate.– weekly rate > very high intensity threshold.– High intensity threshold < weekly rate ≤ very high intensity threshold.– medium intensity threshold < weekly rate ≤ high intensity threshold.– epidemic threshold < weekly rate ≤ medium intensity threshold.– weekly rate ≤ epidemic threshold. ILI, influenza-like illnesses; ARI, acute respiratory illnesses; MEM, moving epidemic method.
