Qualitative indicators (Week 31: 27 July - 2 August 2009 and Week 32: 3 August - 9 August 2009)

The qualitative indicators monitor: the global geographic spread of influenza, trends in acute respiratory diseases, the intensity of respiratory disease activity, and the impact of the pandemic on health-care services.
