Integrated System of Laboratory Data Summaries at the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Laboratories Administration, Division of Virology and Immunology 

 

 The system was developed as a resource tool at the state level, accessible to local public health professionals.

 
Laboratory data from the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Laboratories Administration, Division of Virology and Immunology are summarized and updated weekly. 
The data presented here include non-influenza respiratory viral pathogens (Respiratory Syncytial Virus, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza Virus types I-III, Rhinovirus) during the influenza season.  These data include the numbers of tests performed by cell culture, the non-influenza respiratory viral pathogens identified and their distributions within the five regions of Maryland (Western, Capital, Central, Southern, Eastern Shore) as well as the Maryland Office of Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) and out of state cases, if any.  All OCME cases do not include regional data.  In some cases, specimens were forwarded to the CDC for further testing.
The seasonality of influenza in the Northern Hemisphere generally occurs between October and May.  However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention official start date of the 2011-2012 Influenza Season is February 24, 2012
