ECDC reports on measles and rubella surveillance data submitted by 30 EU/EEA countries on a monthly basis. This report is based on data reported to the European Surveillance System (TESSy) for 1 February 2017 to 31 January 2018. ECDC also monitors European measles outbreaks through epidemic intelligence and publishes the most recent updates monthly in the Communicable Disease Threats Report (CDTR).

Measles outbreaks still ongoing in 2018 and fatalities reported from four countries

Measles outbreaks continue to occur in a number of EU/EEA countries, and there is a risk of spread and sustained transmission in areas with susceptible populations.

Between 1 February 2017 and 31 January 2018, 14 732 cases of measles were reported to the European Surveillance System by 30 EU/EEA countries according to ECDC’s monthly measles and rubella monitoring report published today.

Fifteen EU/EEA countries reported 1 073 cases of measles in January 2018 (Source: TESSy). Greece and France in particular reported an increased number of cases.
