Timeline photosThe latest NSW Respiratory Surveillance Report for the week ending 26 November provides a summary of the week’s COVID-19 and other respiratory virus data.

COVID-19 Summary
• While hosptialisations and ICU admissions decreased this week, there were increases in the number of people notified with COVID-19 and in the proportion of PCR tests that are positive. This indicates ongoing high levels of transmission in the community.
• There is currently no dominant variant driving current case numbers. Both BA.2 and BA.5 sublineages are being commonly detected in community samples.
• There were 32,928 people diagnosed with COVID-19 this week, an increase of 15.2% since the previous week. PCR testing for COVID-19 has increased by 8.9% compared to the previous week. The proportion of PCR tests that were positive for COVID-19 has increased from 17% to 19%. Notification rates are highest in those over 80 years of age and are likely to reflect high testing rates in this age group.
• The seven-day rolling average of daily hospital admissions decreased to an average of 87 admissions by the end of this week, compared with 89 admissions at the end of the previous week. There were 609 people with COVID-19 admitted to hospital and 42 people admitted to ICU this week.
• Emergency department presentations for coronaviruses/SARS requiring an admission have increased to 374 from 321 admissions in the previous week.
• There were 25 COVID-19 deaths reported this week. Of these, 6 (24%) had not received three doses of vaccine. Three deaths were in people aged under 65 years. Deaths may not have occurred in the week in which they were reported.

Other respiratory viruses summary
• Influenza activity is currently at low levels but influenza vaccination continues to be recommended. If you are travelling to the northern hemisphere please make sure you are up-to-date with COVID and influenza vaccinations. immunisationhandbook.health.gov.au/contents/vaccine-preventable-diseases/influenza-flu#travellers
