In 2015, influenza activity globally has generally decreased or remained low with only a few countries reporting elevated levels of respiratory illness. Influenza activity in the Caribbean has remained at low levels with the exception of Cuba, where high numbers of severe acute respiratory infections (SARI) were reported, associated with the Influenza A (H1N1). Influenza AH1N1 is one of several influenza strains that circulates around the world, including the Caribbean region. Learn more about influenza
