Maine CDC Infectious Disease Program Report

 Maine CDC's Infectious Disease Program Quarterly Case Counts Report for Quarters 1-4.


This report includes investigations initiated during MMWR Year 2019 (December 30, 2018 through December 28, 2019).  Only investigations with a case status are included in this report.  For all outbreak conditions confirmed, probable, and suspect case statuses are included.  For non-outbreak conditions confirmed and probable case statuses are included.  If a condition is not listed that means no cases met the case definition during this time.


This report is a graph of selected reportable diseases that displays the preliminary Year-To-Date (YTD) totals for the current year against the median YTD totals for the previous five-year period (2015 – 2019).
