West Nile fever - Situation update, 2 December 2016


As of 1 December 2016, 210 cases of West Nile fever in humans have been reported in the EU Member States and 267 cases in the neighbouring countries, since the beginning of the 2016 transmission season.

This week no new cases have been reported in the EU Member States and three cases have been reported in the neighbouring countries.

Israel reported a new case in the already affected Haifa district.

Turkey reported two cases in the  Izmir and Manisa provinces (Aegean region) with dates of onset of symptoms in August and September.

Otherwise, for the case reported by France with the onset of disease in August during his stay in Egypt, investigations are still ongoing to confirm the exact place of infection. The Cairo governorate and Menoufia governorate are the two possible places considered so far.

If no recent cases are reported in Europe next week, the last 2016 weekly update will be published on 9 December.
