Threats and outbreaks of food- and water borne diseases

This page lists rapid outbreaks assessment and epidemiological updates on outbreaks of food- and water borne diseases.

Rapid outbreak assessments aim at supporting the countries and the European Commission in their preparedness and response to a public health threat. They provide a timely summary and risk assessment of a public health threat for EU/EEA countries related to a specific event. They also include potential options for response. As outbreaks or public health events develop, ECDC may issue updated risk assessments.

Epidemiological updates are rapid situation updates on an epidemiological situation, such as a currently evolving outbreak or a public health threat, optionally including an assessment from ECDC.
