Disease Outbreaks due to Sprouts

As of June, 2018 the Gideon database (www.GideonOnline.com) chronicles 22,777 published Infectious Diseases outbreaks.  Sprouts were implicated in 13.4% of outbreaks which specify a disease vehicle (5.2% of salmonellosis outbreaks).  Salmonellae were responsible for 83% of outbreaks associated with sprouts.  The remainder were caused by Escherichia coli, Listeria monocytogenes or Bacillus cereus.

Japanese Encephalitis in Assam State

Since 2008, data regarding Japanese Encephalitis in India have distinguished between Japanese encephalitis [JE] and Acute encephalitis syndrome [AES].  Cases of the latter have been variously ascribed to Chandipura, enteroviral infection, scrub typhus and lychee fruit intoxication.  [1,2]    In 1963, 22% of individuals in Assam (Lakhimpur and Darrang districts) were seropositive toward JE virus.  Surveys conducted during 2006 to 2014 found that Japanese encephalitis was responsible for 30% to 78% of acute encephalitis cases in Assam.  A study published in 2007 found that 19.3% of patients with Japanese encephalitis in Assam State have concurrent neurocysticercosis.  In the following chart, I’ve compared reported incidence for these two conditions in India and in Assam State.
