InfluenzaNet is a system to monitor the activity of influenza-like-illness (ILI) with the aid of volunteers via the internet. It has been operational in The Netherlands and Belgium (since 2003), Portugal (since 2005) and Italy (since 2008), and the current objective is to implement InfluenzaNet in more European countries.

In contrast with the traditional system of sentinel networks of mainly primary care physicians coordinated by the European Influenza Surveillance Scheme (EISS), InfluenzaNet obtains its data directly from the population. This creates a fast and flexible monitoring system whose uniformity allows for direct comparison of ILI rates between countries.

Any resident of a country where InfluenzaNet is implemented can participate by completing an online application form, which contains various medical, geographic and behavioural questions. Participants are reminded weekly to report any symptoms they have experienced since their last visit. The incidence of ILI is determined on the basis of a uniform case definition.

Il bollettino di oggi Lunedì 12 Ottobre 2020: 4.619 nuovi casi con 85mila tamponi. I morti sono 39

I numeri di oggi sono lievemente di meno rispetto agli oltre cinquemila nuovi casi dei giorni passati ma l'effetto "Domenica" si fa sentire. Oggi solo 85mila tamponi, contro i 130mila di qualche giorno fa.

L'epidemia di Covid in Italia sta ripartendo e solo con misure restrittive possiamo contenere una seconda ondata.
