Table 1 notes

  • Specimens from Yukon (YT), Northwest Territories (NT) and Nunavit (NU) are sent to reference laboratories in other provinces and reported results reflect specimens identified as originating from YT, NT or NU.
  • Results from British Columbia comprise of specimens from the following sites: BC Children’s and Women’s Hospital, Children's and Women's Hospital Laboratory, Fraser Health Medical Microbiology Laboratory, Island Health, Providence Health Care, Powell River Hospital, St. Paul’s Hospital,
  • Delays in the reporting of data may cause data to change retrospectively.
  • For BC, only data from subtyped influenza A specimens are included in the weekly number of influenza detections and so the sum of A(H1N1)pdm09, A(H3), and A(UnS) positive results may not equal the sum of total Flu A positive results.

Table 2 notes

  • Specimens from YT, NT and NU are sent to reference laboratories in other provinces and reported results reflect specimens identified as originating from YT, NT or NU.
  • Results from British Columbia comprise of specimens from the following sites: BC Children’s and Women’s Hospital, Children's and Women's Hospital Laboratory, Fraser Health Medical Microbiology Laboratory, Island Health, Providence Health Care, Powell River Hospital, St. Paul’s Hospital,
  • Delays in the reporting of data may cause data to change retrospectively.
  • Due to reporting delays, the sum of weekly report totals do not add up to cumulative totals.
  • For British Columbia, only data from subtyped influenza A specimens are included in the values for A(H1N1pdm09), A(H3N2) and A(UnS). The sum of the values for A(H1N1pdm09), A(H3N2) and A(UnS) will not equal the A total column for the British Columbia and Canada.
