ECDC has published Dengue outbreak in Madeira, Portugal, October-November 2012. Click through to download the report as a PDF. The abstract:
On 3 October 2012, Portugal reported two cases of autochthonous dengue virus infection in the Autonomous Region of Madeira (Portugal). When a few days later the Institute of Health and Social Affairs (Instituto de Administração da Saúde e Assuntos Sociais) reported 18 confirmed and 191 probable cases, it had become clear that this constituted a noteworthy outbreak of dengue in Madeira.
This report covers the activities and findings of the ECDC mission to Madeira from 22 October to 7 November 2012.I was at ECDC in Stockholm on October 22 when the mission was launched, and was able to meet some of the people involved. It's fascinating (and impressive) to see what ECDC's professionals learned and accomplished in just one particular event.
