Cluster of new Salmonella serotype cases in four EU Member States
Date of publication: 20 March 2017

Since March 2016, four EU Member States have reported a total of 40 cases of a new Salmonella serotype. Pulsed-Field Gel Electrophoresis (PFGE) and Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) have confirmed the genetic closeness of the Salmonella isolates, suggesting a common source of infection. This risk assessment discusses the suspected vehicle of infection and assesses the threat to public health in the European Union/European Economic Area.

Genetic evolution of influenza A(H7N9) virus in China – implications for public health. Sixth upate, 9 March 2017
Date of publication: 10 March 2017

Since the notification of a novel reassortant influenza A(H7N9) virus on 31 March 2013, 1 258 laboratory confirmed cases of human infection with the virus have been reported. In February 2017, a new A(H7N9) virus with mutations in the haemagglutinin gene was detected in China. This risk assessment examines the implications for Europe in terms of pathogenicity, surveillance and control strategies, and discusses the threat of importation, transmissibility to humans and the potential for human-to-human transmission.

Ongoing outbreak of measles in Romania, risk of spread and epidemiological situation in EU/EEA countries
Date of publication: 7 March 2017

A measles outbreak in Romania has been ongoing since February 2016 and cases continue to be reported despite implemented and ongoing response measures at the national level through reinforced vaccination activities. As of 17 February 2017, 3 071 cases had been reported to the National Institute of Public Health in Romania since the end of September 2016. This rapid risk assessment reviews the ongoing outbreak of measles in Romania as well as the risk of spread and epidemiological situation of measles in EU/EEA countries.

Joint rapid outbreak assessment: multi-country outbreak of Salmonella Enteritidis phage type 8, MLVA profile 2-9-7-3-2 and 2-9-6-3-2 infections
Date of publication: 7 March 2017

A multi-country outbreak of Salmonella Enteritidis phage type 8 with MLVA profiles 2-9-7-3-2 and 2-9-6-3-2, linked to eggs, is ongoing in the EU/EEA. Based on whole genome sequencing, isolates are part of two distinct but related genetic clusters. ECDC and EFSA are liaising with relevant authorities in the Member States and the European Commission to facilitate the coordination of investigation and response measures.

Antenatal screening for HIV, hepatitis B, syphilis and rubella susceptibility in the EU/EEA – addressing the vulnerable populations
Date of publication: 21 March 2017

This document aims to support the strengthening of antenatal screening programmes for HIV, hepatitis B, syphilis and rubella susceptibility in the general population and in groups identified as vulnerable to mother-to-child-transmission in the EU/EEA.

Effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of antenatal screening for HIV, hepatitis B, syphilis and rubella susceptibility
Date of publication: 21 March 2017

This literature review of the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of antenatal screening was conducted as part of a project evaluating antenatal screening for HIV, hepatitis B, syphilis and rubella susceptibility in EU/EEA Member States. The purpose of this review was to provide evidence for guidance to strengthen antenatal screening programmes in Europe.

Antenatal screening approaches effective in preventing MTCT of HIV, HBV, syphilis and rubella in vulnerable populations
Date of publication: 21 March 2017

As part of a project to map antenatal screening practices in HIV, hepatitis B, syphilis and rubella susceptibility, a survey was conducted to identify self-observed challenges in the EU/EEA Member States. A review of the existing published literature was performed in order to provide an evidence-base for guidance on strengthening antenatal screening programmes for infections in the EU/EEA countries.

ECDC study protocol for genomic-based surveillance of carbapenem-resistant and/or colistin-resistant Enterobacteriaceae at the EU level
Date of publication: 16 March 2017

This ECDC study protocol describes the technical requirements for implementing future European Union-level genomic-based surveillance of carbapenem-resistant and/or colistin-resistant Enterobacteriaceae. It builds upon and synthesises evidence and the opinion of experts in Member States and at ECDC, compiled since 2014.

Surveillance reports
 

Tuberculosis surveillance and monitoring in Europe, 2017
Date of publication: 20 March 2017

This ninth report launched jointly by ECDC and the WHO Regional Office for Europe, presents the latest data on the status of tuberculosis (TB) in Europe. Overall in 2015 there were an estimated 323 000 new TB cases and relapses in the WHO European Region, with 60 195 cases of TB reported in 30 European Union/European Economic Area (EU/EEA) countries. One area of particular concern is multidrug-resistant TB and this remains a major challenge for TB control in the WHO European Region.
