Number of accommodation site visits connected with travel-associated cases of Legionnaires’ disease per destination country, EU/EEA and neighbouring countries, 2013

Data Map
Period: 01 Jan 2013 - 31 Dec 2013

This surveillance report is based on the 2013 disease surveillance data collected by the European Legionnaires’ Disease Surveillance Network.

The Network collects standard surveillance data on Legionnaires’ disease from EU Member States plus Iceland and Norway, but also operates a second system which covers travel-associated cases of Legionnaires’ disease (TALD), including cases recorded outside the EU/EEA.

The surveillance of TALD aims primarily at identifying clusters of cases that may otherwise not have been detected at the national level, and at enabling timely control measures at the implicated accommodation sites in order to prevent further infections.
