Temporal distribution of positive (a) hPIV1 specimens, (b) hPIV2 specimens, (c) hPIV3 specimens and (d) hPIV4 specimens. Only hPIV1 and hPIV3 specimens had peak rates of positivity greater than 5 % when compared to total numbers of specimens tested by RVP. Rates of hPIV2 and hPIV4 specimen positivity were consistently below 1.5 and 2.5 % respectively and were not analyzed for seasonal or yearly trends
