Major Surveillance Issues

  • Campylobacteriosis. 824 cases of campylobacteriosis were notified in June 2002. This total is higher than the average for June, which is typically a month with low campylobacteriosis incidence. Relative to the size of the population, the highest rate of campylobacteriosis in June 2002 was observed in the combined Auckland health districts.
  • Dengue fever. Seven cases of dengue fever were notified in June 2002, bringing the year to date total to 39. Of the six cases with information recorded on overseas travel, five had recently returned from Rarotonga.
  • Leptospirosis. Eleven cases of leptospirosis were notified in June 2002. Eight of these cases were from Hawkes Bay Health District, seven of whom were from Wairoa District. Nine of the ten cases with information recorded about occupation worked in meat processing.
  • Meningococcal disease. 71 cases of meningococcal disease were notified in June 2002, bringing the year to date total to 238. This total is less than that recorded for the same period in 2001 (247), but is higher than in other years of the current epidemic. Two deaths due to meningococcal disease were reported.
  • Pertussis. The epidemic which began in June 1999 is persisting, with 91 cases notified in June. The majority of June cases were from the South Island, particularly from South Canterbury, Canterbury, and West Coast health districts.
