Semaine 202414 - Acute Respiratory Infection (ARI) - Low activity in general practice

Monday 01 Apr 2024

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 (2024w14), the incidence rate of ARI cases consulting in general practice was estimated at 138 cases per 100,000 population (95% CI [122; 154]).
Subject to future consolidation of data, this rate is stable compared to the previous week (consolidated data for 2024w13: 129 [116; 142]).

At the regional level, the highest incidence rates were noted in: Nouvelle-Aquitaine (214 [134; 294]), Grand Est (172 [112; 232]) and Bretagne (169 [109; 229]). 

Influenza: the incidence rate of influenza cases seen in general practice for acute respiratory infection was estimated at 15 cases per 100,000 population (95% CI [6; 25]), corresponding to 10,185 [3,737; 16,633] new cases.
Subject to future data consolidation, this rate is stable compared to the previous week and is at a low level of activity (consolidated data for 2024w13: 14 [8; 20]).

Covid-19: the incidence rate of Covid-19 cases seen in general practice for acute respiratory infection was estimated at 4 cases of Covid-19 with respiratory signs seen in general practice per 100,000 population (95% CI [2; 6]).
Subject to future consolidation of data, this rate is stable compared to the previous week and is at a low level of activity (consolidated data for 2024w13: 3 [2; 3]).

RSV: the incidence rate of RSV cases seen in general practice for acute respiratory infection was estimated at 0 cases per 100,000 population (95% CI [0; 14]). No case of RSV was identified among patients consulting for ARI and sampled by the Sentinel physicians.
Subject to future consolidation of data, this rate is stable compared to the previous week and is at a low level of activity (consolidated data for 2024w13: 0 [0; 7]).

Semaine 202414 - Acute diarrhea - Low activity in general practice

Monday 01 Apr 2024

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

In mainland France, last week (2024w14), the incidence rate of acute diarrhea cases seen in general practice was estimated at 89 cases per 100,000 population (95% CI [75; 103])
Subject to future consolidation of data, this rate is stable compared to the previous week (consolidated data for 2024w13: 81 [70; 92]) and corresponds to a low activity level compared to those usually observed at this time of the year.

At the regional level, the highest incidence rates were noted in: Grand Est (127 [84; 170]), Nouvelle-Aquitaine (125 [74; 176]) and Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur (116 [46; 186]).

Semaine 202414 - Chickenpox - Moderate activity in general practice

Monday 01 Apr 2024

In mainland France, last week (2024w14), the incidence rate of Chickenpox cases seen in general practice was estimated at 27 cases per 100,000 population (95% CI [20; 34])
Subject to future consolidation of data, this rate is stable compared to the previous week (consolidated data for 2024w13: 28 [22; 34]) and corresponds to a similar activity level compared to those usually observed at this time of the year.

At the regional level, the highest incidence rates were noted in: Occitanie (68 [29; 107]), Hauts-de-France (44 [10; 78]) and Nouvelle-Aquitaine (29 [6; 52]).
