COVID-19/PIMS-TS Rapid Reporting frequency change to Weekly – January 2022

PICANet is moving to a more frequent reporting schedule for COVID-19 and PIMS-TS cases from units. Returns will now be due weekly. The PICANet team will continue to advise of these dates by email.

The upcoming dates for returns are now on Mondays 10th (by Tuesday 11th January at the latest), 17th and 24th January 2022.

This change is due to the increase in reported numbers and to monitor the Omicron variant in PICU populations. The change will remain in place until further notice and will be reviewed if there is a change in national infection rates.

Thank you again to the PICU teams for their ongoing hard work.
