Indigenous salmonellosis low in Ireland


In 2008, there were 449 cases of salmonellosis notified, equating to a national crude incidence rate (CIR) of 10.6/100,000.

For the last eight years, the incidence of salmonellosis in Ireland has remained reasonably steady with around 350-450 cases reported per annum. This is a decrease from the number of cases that were reported in the late 1990s, when the number of cases peaked at 1257 cases in 1998. For further information view the March edition of Epi-Insight.
