Early influenza cases indicate the possibility of severe upcoming season for elderly
Although the overall number of influenza detections in the majority of EU/EEA countries is still low, indications show that influenza circulation is above the seasonal threshold in Croatia, which is unusually early. The main reported subtype among the cases recorded in EU/EEA during the past month is A(H3N2), which disproportionally affects older people, and is associated with lower vaccine effectiveness. This is a sign that the upcoming influenza season could be severe for elderly people, and that influenza patterns may vary between countries in terms of timing.
Options for the use of rapid antigen tests for COVID-19 in the EU/EEA - first update
This document is the first update of the technical report ‘Options for the use of rapid antigen detection tests (RADTs) for COVID-19 in the EU/EEA’. It is intended to facilitate further discussions between Member States on the settings and purpose for which it is appropriate to use RADTs and summarises key considerations for their implementation. Reaching an agreement on settings and performance criteria will be critical for the success of EU/EEA-wide surveillance purposes and for measures related to cross-border travel.
