Curious how this is defined. How many of us go to the quack and get told “it’s a virus, go home, get some rest, here’s your certificate”. How are those events separated from defined “flu” cases? Or are they the statistic reported?

As suggested by the title of the y axis, it is the number of notifications. Influenza, once confirmed via laboratory testing, is a notifiable disease as required by the CDNA.

Well given they rely on (predictable) flu surges to excuse poor performance these numbers don’t suit the narative

Indeed. How inconvenient.

A statistical report from ACT Health?

Come now, how do you expect us to believe the information contained in this?
