  1. Waterborne Campylobacter in Sweden : The cost of an outbreak.

    Article, Communication - En anglais

    IAWQ international symposium on health-related water microbiology. Mallorca (ESP), 1996/10/06.

    Outbreaks of waterborne disease happen in Sweden, as in most other countries.

    During the period 1980-1995, a total of 90 outbreaks were reported, involving about 50,000 sick people and two deaths.

    About 80% of the outbreaks are caused by unknown agents but Campylobacter is the most common agent.

    Between 1980 and 1995,11 campylobacteriosis outbreaks were reported, three of which had 1,000->3,000 sick people involved.

    These waterbome outbreaks cost society, the water-treatment plant involved and the sick person a lot of money.

    A waterborne outbreak also raises the question whether people can have confidence in the community tap water.
