MMWR: Notice to Readers: Changes in the Presentation of Zika Virus Disease, Non-Congenital Infection

Thursday, May 26, 2016   (0 Comments)

The Executive Board of the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists has approved the additions of “Zika virus disease, non-congenital infection” and “Zika virus congenital infection” to the list of nationally notifiable conditions reportable to the National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System (NNDSS) beginning in 2016 (1). Therefore, Zika virus disease, non-congenital infection data previously displayed for 2015 will no longer appear in Table I (Provisional cases of selected infrequently reported notifiable diseases [<1,000 cases reported during the preceding year], United States) of the MMWR Weekly Notifiable Diseases and Mortality Tables, because the condition was not considered nationally notifiable at that time. Instead, “NN” (not nationally notifiable) will appear in the 2015 column for total cases reported for previous years.
