Monthly Surveillance Report - Nov 2001

Major Surveillance Issues

  • Campylobacteriosis is showing an unusually high incidence for October and November throughout New Zealand. If this pattern continues New Zealand can expect a particularly high rate over summer.
  • Salmonellosis incidence in 2001 will be the highest ever notified in New Zealand. The continuing STM 160 epidemic is contributing to the sustained rise with this organism now representing 47% of total Salmonella isolates. A recent investigation of STM 160 identified 'contact with an individual with diarrhoea in the previous month' and 'contact with wild birds' as risk factors.
  • Meningococcal disease incidence remains elevated with a cumulative total of 605 cases for the year to date. As yet there is no sign of any deceleration in incidence that usually takes place over summer.
