Weekly Influenza Report 

During flu season the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) produces a Weekly Influenza Report for clinicians.  The report provides information on flu activity in the state.  The report also compares influenza like illness (ILI) in Arkansas to activity in the US.   ADH receives reports of only a fraction of flu cases.  Therefore, it is important to understand that the information in the weekly update is representative of the timing and location of activity, but it does not reflect the overall burden of disease.  It is presumed that there are many more people actually affected than the report shows.  

Since October 4th, 2015, there have been over 1,000 positive influenza antigen tests that have been reported to the Arkansas Department of Health. We have had three flu deaths so far this flu season.
