CDC and Southeast Asian Representatives Meet in Bangkok for Avian Flu Workshop

Last week, CDC staff met with leaders from animal and human health sectors across Southeast Asia to hone avian influenza (bird flu) preparedness in the region. Workshop attendees worked to build on existing efforts to address the ongoing threat of H5, set region-specific priorities, and reinforce the importance of bird flu preparedness.
Image titled “RESP-LENS”. Under the title, the acronym is spelled out and says” Respiratory Virus Laboratory Emergency Department Network Surveillance.” To the right, are images of flu, COVID-19, and RSV viruses. In the background, more of the viruses are scattered around and lab beakers are centered in the background. 

CDC Launches New Respiratory Illness Data Dashboard: RESP-LENS

Today, CDC posted a new dashboard that shows emergency department visits for laboratory confirmed influenza (flu), SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19),and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection. RESP-LENS can be used to follow trends and compare activity of these three different pathogens in different age groups and geographic locations. The dashboard will be updated weekly on Fridays.

#CDC study summarizes results of monitoring 4,000+ people exposed to H5N1-infected birds. Only one person tested positive for #H5N1. The immediate risk to the US public from ongoing H5 outbreaks in wild birds and poultry is low.
