Organization: Public Health Agency of Canada

In this Respiratory Virus Report, the number of detections of coronavirus reflects only seasonal human coronaviruses, not the novel pandemic coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) that causes COVID-19. For information on COVID-19, see the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19): Outbreak update

Overall Summary

In week 47 (November 21 to November 27, 2021), activity of almost all respiratory viruses are within expected levels for this time of year.

  • Respiratory syncytial virus (1,223 detections; 8.5% positive), enterovirus/rhinovirus (721 detections; 18.1% positive), and human parainfluenza virus (301 detections; 6.7% positive) are the most common seasonal respiratory viruses detected in Canada.
    • Activity of respiratory syncytial virus is now within expected levels. Activity has decreased in Quebec in recent weeks, while activity has been either stable or slowly increasing in other parts of Canada.
    • Activity of enterovirus/rhinovirus is within expected levels for this time of year.
    • Activity of human parainfluenza virus has decreased and is now within expected levels.
  • Detections of other respiratory viruses are low.
  • The number of tests performed for all viruses are above expected levels.
  • 32/34 sentinel laboratories reported surveillance data.

The data in the RVDSS report represent surveillance data available at the time of writing. Data missing from the current week are denoted by N.R. Data not collected by reporting lab denoted by N.C.

The reporting laboratory previously listed as CHEO - Ottawa is now listed as EORLA to better reflect data submitted by this provider.

Specimens from Yukon (YT) and Northwest Territories (NT) are sent to reference laboratories in other provinces and reported results reflect specimens identified as originating from YT or NT.

Results from British Columbia (BC) 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 , Vancouver General Hospital, Victoria General Hospital, BCCDC Public Health Laboratory, Interior Health Authority sites and Northern Health Authority sites.

Delays in the reporting of data may cause data to change retrospectively.

For BC and YT, only data from subtyped influenza A specimens are included in the weekly number of influenza detections. The sum of A(H1N1)pdm09, A(H3), and A(UnS) positive results may not equal the sum of total Flu A positive results.

The data in the RVDSS report represent surveillance data available at the time of writing. Data not collected by reporting lab denoted by N.C.

Note: 32 influenza detections reported to date this season are known to be associated with recent live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV) receipt and were excluded from the data as they do not represent community transmission of seasonal influenza viruses.

Specimens from Yukon (YT) and Northwest Territories (NT) are sent to reference laboratories in other provinces and reported results reflect specimens identified as originating from YT or NT.

The reporting laboratory previously listed as CHEO - Ottawa is now listed as EORLA to better reflect data submitted by this provider.

Results from British Columbia (BC) 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 , Vancouver General Hospital, Victoria General Hospital, BCCDC Public Health Laboratory, Interior Health Authority sites and Northern Health Authority sites.

Delays in the reporting of data may cause data to change retrospectively. Due to these delays, the sum of weekly report totals do not add up to cumulative totals.

For BC and YT, only data from subtyped influenza A specimens are included in the weekly number of influenza detections. The sum of A(H1N1)pdm09, A(H3), and A(UnS) positive results may not equal the sum of total Flu A positive results.
