Acute Respiratory Infection (ARI) Covid-19, Influenza and other respiratory viruses   Définition

  High activity in general practice

Previously on sentiweb            

ARI are caused by a variety of respiratory viruses including SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19), influenza viruses, and other respiratory viruses such as RSV, rhinovirus, and metapneumovirus. The purpose of ARI surveillance is to monitor outbreaks of these viruses.

In mainland France, last week (2024w07), the incidence rate of ARI cases consulting in general practice was estimated at 356 cases per 100,000 population (95% CI [329; 383]).
Subject to future consolidation of data, this rate is decreasing over the past three weeks (consolidated data for 2024w06: 399 [377; 421]).

At the regional level, the highest incidence rates were noted in: Nouvelle-Aquitaine (560 [417; 703]), Grand Est (522 [376; 668]) and Pays de la Loire (453 [326; 580]). 

Influenza: the incidence rate of influenza cases seen in general practice for acute respiratory infection was estimated at 170 cases per 100,000 population (95% CI [144; 196]), corresponding to 113,600[96,169; 131,031] new cases.
Subject to future consolidation of data, this rate is decreasing compared to the previous week but remains at a high level of activity (consolidated data for 2024w06: 196 [172; 220]).

Covid-19: the incidence rate of Covid-19 cases seen in general practice for acute respiratory infection was estimated at 6 cases per 100,000 population (95% CI [4; 9]), corresponding to 4,244 [2,706; 5,782] new cases.
Subject to future consolidation of data, this rate is stable and at a low level of activity (consolidated data for 2024w06: 8 [6; 10]).

RSV: the incidence rate of VRS cases seen in general practice for acute respiratory infection was estimated at 0 cases per 100,000 populationNo cases of RSV were identified among patients consulting for ARI and sampled by the Sentinel physicians.
Subject to future consolidation of data, this rate is stable and at a low level of activity (consolidated data for 2024w06: 0 cases per 100,000 population).

Acute diarrhea   Définition

  Moderate activity in general practice

Previously on sentiweb            

The purpose of acute diarrhea surveillance is to monitor gastroenteritis outbreaks. 

In mainland France, last week (2024w07), the incidence rate of acute diarrhea cases seen in general practice was estimated at 94 cases per 100,000 population (95% CI [80; 108])
Subject to future consolidation of data, this rate is stable compared to the previous week (consolidated data for 2024w06: 93 [82; 104]) and is among the lowest rates usually observed at this time of the year.

At the regional level, the highest incidence rates were noted in: Corse (151 [45; 257]), Bretagne (132 [75; 189]) and Bourgogne-Franche-Comté (126 [61; 191]).

COVID-19 and Influenza Surveillance : role of the Sentinelles network

In March 2020, following the emergence of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), the “Sentinelles surveillance” evolved. The surveillance of  “influenza-like illness” (ILI, defined as sudden onset of fever above 39°C, accompanied by myalgia and respiratory signs) has been replaced by “acute respiratory infections” (ARI, defined as sudden onset of fever or feeling of fever and respiratory signs). This new surveillance enables both the monitoring of the COVID-19 pandemic and epidemics due to other respiratory viruses (influenza, respiratory syncytial virus, rhinovirus and metapneumovirus), based on patients consulting a general practitioner for an ARI. This surveillance is carried out with “Santé publique France” (the national agency for public health), the National Reference Center for respiratory infections (“Institut Pasteur” and “Hospices Civils de Lyon”) and the University of Corsica.

Data from the Sentinelles network are integrated into the overall national COVID-19 surveillance coordinated by “Santé publique France”. For more information, you can consult the weekly COVID-19 and influenza newsletters from “Santé publique France”

At the same time, the Sentinelles network is leading studies and research works on the COVID-19 presented in the “COVID-19” section of this website.
