Abstract

We analyzed the data available in Nepal during this pandemic in order to determine the epidemiological, clinical and virological characteristics of pandemic influenza A in 2009. The test was conducted by real-time Reverse Transcription--Polymerase Chain Reaction on sample from patients with suspected influenza-like illnesses. Out of 538 cases were tested, 32% were positive for pandemic influenza A 2009 and the infection rate was highest for cases of 11-20 years and lowest in >50 years of age.
