Excess mortality among the eldery in European countries, December 2014 to February 2015
Resumen
Since December 2014 and up to February 2015, the weekly number of excess deaths from all-causes among individuals???65 years of age in 14 European countries have been significantly higher than in the four previous winter seasons. The rise in unspecified excess mortality coincides with increased proportion of influenza detection in the European influenza surveillance schemes with a main predominance of influenza A(H3N2) viruses seen throughout Europe in the current season, though cold snaps and other respiratory infections may also have had an effect.
