​Since the 2009 influenza pandemic, ECDC has produced early-season risk assessments for EU/EEA countries every season, to inform national public health authorities of the key attributes of the ongoing influenza season. These risk assessments, based on weekly clinical epidemiological and virological data from primary and secondary healthcare settings, provide an early description of the epidemiological pattern of seasonal influenza in the first affected countries and anticipate the progression of influenza activity and the possible impact on susceptible and at-risk populations for the rest of the season.
