There were 1,132 specimens positive for influenza 637 AH1N1pdm09, 114 AH3N2, 376 B, 2 dual influenza coinfections, and 3 influenza coinfections with other respiratory pathogens. See Table 2 on pages 4 and 5 for these results and other respiratory pathogens identified. Differences between specimens collected and tested are due to specimens sent for sequencing only andor specimens not tested for various reasons. During the 2015-2016 influenza season, influenza AH1N1pdm09 was the predominant strain. This season had a late start, with influenza activity peaking at Week 10.
