New Zealand : Pandemic Influenza H1N1 2009 (swine flu) – Update 191

Via New Zealand's Ministry of Health :

" The level of influenza activity in New Zealand remains relatively low at the moment, however there is still circulation of the pandemic influenza H1N1 virus and other respiratory viruses in the community. The predominant influenza virus is likely to be the pandemic strain. Many general practices are seeing more young children who are unwell.

Healthline, New Zealand's free health 24 hour health advice line has seen a slight increase in the number of calls regarding people with influenza-like illnesses. Over the past week just over 17% of all calls to Healthline were people calling with influenza-like illnesses."
