Burden of influenza-associated deaths in the Americas, 2002-2008.

Cheng PY, Palekar R, Azziz-Baumgartner E, Iuliano D, Alencar AP, Bresee J, Oliva O, de Souza Mde F, Widdowson MA - Influenza Other Respir Viruses (2015)

Bottom Line: We estimated influenza-associated deaths for 35 PAHO countries during 2002-2008.Annually, PAHO countries report registered deaths.For the 35 PAHO countries, we estimated an annual mean influenza-associated mortality rate of 2·1/100,000 among <65-year olds, 31·9/100 000 among those 65-74 years, and 161·8/100,000 among those ≥ 75 years.

(A–G) Time series of monthly (A, B) or weekly (C–G) mortality rates coded as respiratory and circulatory causes from January 2002 through December 2009 (July 2002 through June 2010 for Mexico and United States). Blue line: observed mortality rates; red line: baseline rates predicted by a regression model; green line: predicted mortality rates. Periods highlighted in purple mark seasonal influenza epidemic periods. Y-axis: death rate (100 000 per person-years). (A) Argentina; (B) southern Brazil; (C) Chile; (D) Mexico; (E) Paraguay; (F) Uruguay; (G) United States.

Mentions: We first calculated the proportion of all respiratory and circulatory deaths due to influenza using the influenza-associated death rate in Table1 divided by the crude respiratory or circulatory death rate (Table S1). Figure1 shows these data stratified by country. For respiratory deaths, the proportions ranged from 3% to 15% for persons aged <65 years, 3–13% for persons aged 65–74 years, and 4–16% for persons aged ≥75 years. For circulatory deaths, the proportions ranged from 1% to 4% for persons aged <65 years, 1–5% for persons aged 65–74 years, and 2–7% for persons aged >75 years. The mean baseline proportion of respiratory deaths in the seven countries due to influenza was 7% across the three age groups. The mean of the seven-country baseline proportion of circulatory deaths was 2·2% for persons aged <65 years, 2·6% for persons aged 65–74 years, and 3·5% for persons aged ≥75 years (Table S1).
