COVID-19, Influenza Surveillance conducted by the Sentinelles network

In March 2020, following the emergence of SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19), Sentinelles surveillance evolved.The monitoring of "influenza-like illness" (sudden onset of fever > 39°C (>102°F) with myalgia and respiratory signs) has been replaced by that of "acute respiratory infections" (ARI) (sudden onset of fever (or feeling of fever) and respiratory signs).The surveillance of this new health indicator allows monitoring the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as epidemics caused by other respiratory viruses (influenza, RSV, rhinovirus and metapneumovirus).This surveillance is conducted in collaboration with “Santé publique France”, the National Reference Center for respiratory infections (“Institut Pasteur “and “Hospices Civils de Lyon”) and the University of Corsica.

The weekly reports of “Santé publique France” include all the surveillance data (outpatient and hospital) on the situation regarding COVID-19 and influenza.

Observed situation for the week 07 of the year 2021, from 02/15/2021 to 02/21/2021 :

These news are updated on wednesday - Published on 02-24-2021

Acute Respiratory Infection (ARI) 

  (COVID-19, INFLUENZA & other respiratory viruses) Stable activity in general practice

Acute diarrhea 

  Low to moderate activity in general practice                                                   

Chickenpox 

  Moderate activity in general practice                                                   
 
The objective of ARI surveillance is to monitor epidemics of COVID-19, INFLUENZA as well as those due to other seasonal respiratory viruses (RSV, rhinovirus and metapneumovirus).

In metropolitan France, last week (2021w07), the incidence rate of ARI consultating (or teleconsulting) in general practice was estimated at 101 cases per 100,000 inhabitants (95% CI [87 ; 115]). This rate is stable compared to week 2021w06 (consolidated data: 94 [83 ; 105]).

At the regional level, the highest incidence rates were noted in: Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (190 [101 ; 279]), Ile-de-France (188 [130 ; 246]) and Pays de la Loire (159 [79 ; 239]).

COVID-19 monitoring: Last week (2021w07), among the ARI cases seen in GPs and paediatric consultations, 6.2% of the samples tested were positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus (COVID-19) (2/32 tested). The incidence rate of ARI cases due to SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) seen in general practice was estimated at 9 (95%CI [1; 16]) cases per 100,000 inhabitants (representing 5,769 [671; 10,867] new COVID-19 cases seen in general practice. This incidence trend is fairly stable since mid-November (2020w47).

INFLUENZA monitoring: there is no active circulation of influenza viruses in GPs and paediatric consultations. Last week (2021w07), no influenza virus was detected.
