Monthly Surveillance Report - Mar 2002

Monday 23rd September 2019


Major Surveillance Issues

  • Brucellosis. First locally acquired case of Brucella suis, presumed to be from contact with infected pig(s). The investigation is continuing.
  • Campylobacteriosis. Incidence in March remains relatively high following the highest incidence summer seen for this disease.
  • Hepatitis A. Increase in incidence seen in February and March attributed to a common source outbreak linked to consumption of uncooked blueberries.
  • Salmonellosis. Incidence in March remains relatively high following the highest incidence summer seen for this disease. The contribution of STM160 to the total Salmonella burden appears to be declining. This follows a 15-month period during which this type has increasingly dominated salmonellosis in New Zealand. The contribution of Salmonella Typhimurium phage type 1 has increased, and comprised 39.8% of cases during March 2002.
