Limited influenza activity was reported in 10 of the 11 Health Service Regions (HSR) for week 49. One HSR did not report. Four HSRs (1, 4/5N, 8 and 9/10) report an increased level of activity over the previous week. For a map of Health Service Regions, please visit the following website:

During week 49, the DSHS lab confirmed (by culture) two cases of influenza A from Starr County. Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston also reported a culture confirmed case of influenza A.

Data from the Sentinel Provider Surveillance Network (SPSN) indicates a steady rise in influenza-like illness (ILI). However, numbers will most likely change as reports for week 49 continue to come in.
