Epidemic threshold of gastroenteritis exceeded in several regions

At the regional scale, it is in Corsica that the Gastroenteritis epidemic struck the most with 155 cases per 100.000 inhabitants

If the season is a bit unusual, the gastroenteritis is back in the middle of July. According to the latest newsletter of the Sentinelles network of Public Health France, published on Wednesday, the epidemic threshold was reached last week in several regions of France.

According to data available during the week of July 8 to 14, 93 cases of acute diarrhoea per 100,000 inhabitants were recorded, just above the epidemic threshold, at 92 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

Corsica, the most affected region

On a regional scale, it is in Corsica that the epidemic struck the most with 155 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, in front of the Pays-de-la-Loire, with 128 cases per 100,000, and Provence-Alpes-Cote d ‘ Azur, which has 118 cases per 100,000.

But the Public Health France is reassuring: “The incidence rate should consolidate below the epidemic threshold once all data (doctors) available,” reads the latest epidemiological bulletin.
