Surveillance report: Avian influenza overview (November 2017 – February 2018)
The “Avian influenza overview” report is published quarterly and provide an update of the developments of avian influenza viruses in EU/EEA and worldwide, in particular with a view to describe the evolution of virus spread from certain regions towards the EU. In case of significant changes in the epidemiology of avian influenza, these reports could be needed more frequently.
The report is published jointly by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and the European Union Reference Laboratory for Avian influenza (EURL). Avian influenza is an infectious viral disease in birds, including domestic poultry. Avian influenza is mainly found in birds, but under certain circumstances infections can also occur in humans even though the risk is generally very low.
Zoonotic influenza - Annual Epidemiological Report for 2016
No human cases of avian influenza were reported in the EU/EEA. Human cases of avian influenza A(H5N1) were reported from Egypt and A(H7N9) infections from mainland China, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) and Taiwan.
Zoonotic influenza - Annual Epidemiological Report for 2015
ECDC’s annual surveillance reports provide a wealth of epidemiological data to support decision-making at the national level. They are mainly intended for public health professionals and policymakers involved in disease prevention and control programmes.
Situation overview: highly pathogenic avian influenza virus A of H5 type, 2 December 2015
This risk assessment looks at the risks of transmission in the EU/EEA and the options for response in connection with this localised outbreak.
Respiratory tract infections - Annual epidemiological report for 2012-13
The Annual Epidemiological Report 2014 gives an overview of the epidemiology of communicable diseases of public health significance in Europe, drawn from surveillance information on the 52 communicable diseases and health issues for which surveillance is mandatory in the European Union and European Economic Area countries. The respiratory tract infections chapter from the upcoming ECDC Annual Epidemiological Report 2014 is now available as a separate report and provides a snapshot of the epidemiological situation in Europe across a number of diseases.
4th Joint WHO/Europe–ECDC Annual European Influenza Surveillance Meeting 2014
WHO/Europe has been holding annual influenza surveillance meetings jointly with the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) since 2011. This meeting brings together epidemiologists and virologists – the national influenza surveillance focal points – from 50 Member States to discuss national, regional and global surveillance related to seasonal influenza and novel influenza viruses, such as avian influenza A(H7N9).
