During the period of study (weeks 19-53), 3.903 suspected pharyngeal were examined at the National Influenza Centre for northern Greece. 1439 specimens were confirmed as pandemic H1N1 2009 (37.23%) infections. The hospitalization rate increased dramatically during November and December, while the death rate was 1.3%.
