Webpage Provides One-Stop Look at Viral Respiratory Disease Data


Physicians and clinic staff interested in tracking viral respiratory illness trends this season, can make use of a new webpage created to offer an improved overview.

MDH launched the Viral Respiratory Illness in Minnesota (Data & Statistics) page as a one-stop shop for viral respiratory disease data. The page currently has interactive data on hospitalizations due to COVID-19, influenza, and RSV for the seven-county metropolitan area (among children and adults). In the coming weeks and months, MDH will add data to provide more information on circulating viral respiratory diseases.

The full Weekly Influenza & Respiratory Activity: Statistics report (containing influenza and RSV trends) and the COVID-19 Situation Update will continue to be updated weekly and there will be a link to those sites from the new page. Each page will be updated weekly on Thursday at 11 a.m.

If you would like to receive email reminders when the pages are updated, subscribe to Respiratory Illness Activity in Minnesota.
