FOI 1009 - Flu Data


Information Requested:

Could Public Health Wales tell me the number of cases of flu in Wales per annum from 1997 to the current date in 2022  ? Could PHW give the monthly figures of flu over the past 5 years please, indicating rather month? 


Information provided for the answer:

Thank you for your recent request dated 09th December 2022. 
Weekly and annual flu reports are already published here: 

For data prior to 2018 is spread over multiple datasets in different formats, due to the current pressures of flu, scarlet fever, iGAS and RSV seasons we are unable to provide that information at this time.
