Paradigm Shift Intervention Monitoring
Increased Influenza Testing In All States
Control and Prevention (CDC) has asked all states to increase testing of influenza-like illness cases in order to identify additional potential infections with this virus and to evaluate the frequency of human-to-human transmission.
The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) has developed the following guidance for healthcare providers, hospitals and laboratories to insure suspect novel influenza cases are identified and investigated quickly. This interim guidance remains in effect until future updates are provided by MDCH.
The above comments are from the Michigan Department of Community Health per the CDC request for additional testing. MDCH also provided a background on H3N2pdm11..
This request has been made to each state in view of the recent cases and confirmed human to human transmission.
The CDC is to be congratulated for this request and guidance.
