(Week Ending March 5, 2010)
The following depicts ILI case data (CDC ILI case definition) [ICD-CM Diagnosis 487.1] reported to ACHA by institutions of higher education participating in this ACHA ILI surveillance network. Data reported are for the weekly period (Saturday through Friday), reported to ACHA as of the following Tuesday.
ACHA thanks all participating institutions involved in this surveillance effort. Together, our efforts should provide college health professionals and public health officials with a greater understanding of the pace and geography of newly emerging cases and better understand and manage response to the novel H1N1 flu pandemic.
Limitations: State case counts and rates do not represent the complete incidence of ILI in the state's population, nor the incidence of ILI among all institutions of higher education in the state. The case counts and rates only represent those institutions of higher education that participate in the surveillance program.
