Influenza hospital discharges by week (2013)

Influenza is a potentially life-threatening virus that spreads quickly from person to person. It is a significant public health issue in this country, with 10–20 percent of New Zealanders infected every year. While influenza outbreaks can occur all year round, rates peak in winter and spring. This is because the virus can survive longer outside the body in periods of colder weather and low absolute humidity (dry conditions). This dataset relates to the "Influenza" measure on the Environmental Indicators, Te taiao Aotearoa website.
