Surveillance and outbreak reports
Quarterly summaries that detail the incidence of foodborne disease, surveillance activities and outbreak investigations within Queensland are produced by the OzFoodNet team. These reports are provided to the national body.
OzFoodnet Australia collates reports from all states and territories to produce national quarterly reports that help detect and respond to emerging foodborne diseases and multijurisdictional outbreaks that cross state and territory borders.
National quarterly reports (which include collated Queensland data) are available from the OzFoodNet website.
