Seasonal influenza - Annual Epidemiological Report for 2013-14 season
The 2013–14 influenza season was mild and dominated by influenza A viruses, with a co-circulation of A(H1N1)pdm09 and A(H3N2) viruses in most countries. Only two countries reported higher syndromic notification rates compared with the previous season.
Summary of the influenza 2013–2014 season in Europe
Active circulation of influenza has started late in Europe in the 2013-2014 season, with a different timing across EU/EEA countries, states the annual ECDC risk assessment on seasonal influenza. The first countries affected have been Bulgaria, Greece, Portugal and Spain, where the A(H1)pdm09 influenza virus has dominated. Without any specific geographic pattern, influenza activity has since spread rapidly across Europe. In Bulgaria, Portugal and Spain, the season peaked in weeks 4 and 5/2014, while influenza activity still continues to increase in Greece.
