For people aged ≥5 years, we classified a death as being associated with ARI if caregivers reported that decedents developed sudden onset fever and cough or sore

throat within 14 days of death. As part of the ongoing national hospital based

swabs from case-patients. We only considered swabs from children <5 years who
presented with fever and cough or difficulty breathing with one danger sign; and from
patients presented with fever and cough or sore throat if aged ≥5 years. We tested the samples for influenza and its subtypes. To calculate the incidence of influenza-

decedents in the community with a history of sudden onset of ARI 14 days prior to
death, and divided this numerator by the age-specific 2011census population of the

with ARI, 150 (13%) were children <5 years, 30 (2%) were aged 5-19 years, 211 (18%)
were aged 20-59 years and 800 (67%) were aged ≥60 years; 738 (62%) were males. Of the ARI- related deaths, 884 (67%) received treatment from certified physicians or
hospitals within seven days of illness onset and 399 (33%) were treated by uncertified
