Respiratory Pathogen Detection Rate Week Ending 14-06-2020

14 June 2020

This report tracks the weekly detection rate of common respiratory pathogens.

The detection rate is the % of samples tested that returned a positive result for Influenza A and B, Human Metapneumovirus (HMPV), Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), Bordetella Pertussis and Mycoplasma.

COVID-19 positive patients may undergo repeated testing over the course of their infection. The graph for SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) therefore plots the % of samples tested where the patient first returned a positive result to allow for a comparison with the other respiratory pathogens.

Data sourced from SA Pathology Millennium database.
