Communicable disease threats report, 11 January 2013, week 2
The ECDC communicable disease threats report is a weekly bulletin intended for epidemiologists and health professionals in the area of communicable disease prevention and control. Summarising information gathered by ECDC through its epidemic intelligence activities regarding communicable disease threats of concern to the European Union, it also provides updates on the global situation and changes in the epidemiology of communicable diseases with potential to affect Europe, including diseases that are the focus of eradication efforts.
During week 2 of 2013, from 6-12 January, ECDC monitored several communicable disease outbreaks that may pose a threat in EU countries.
The weekly Communicable Disease Threats Report (CDTR) reported increasing seasonal influenza in a number of European countries, especially in north-western Europe.
Sixteen European countries have reported increasing trend of influenza transmission. Medium intensity of influenza transmission is reported by eleven countries, and one country reports high intensity. The virological pattern seen in Europe is different from that in North America.
