Why not join the FluSurvey Platform?
16 October 2023
FluSurvey is a webtool designed to monitor self-reported respiratory symptoms, social contact patterns and health service use in the general population in near-real time through a weekly survey of registered participants.
It is a critical surveillance tool for influenza and COVID-19 and helps us better understand infection and illness in the community especially among those who do not use healthcare services.
It is monitored by UK Health Protection Agency (UKHSA) formerly Public Health England and was originally set up during the swine flu pandemic in 2009 by researchers at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Also, it forms part of a Europe-wide initiative with eight other countries to monitor influenza-like illness (ILI) and Covid-19 activity.
