The European Union One Health Zoonoses Report 2022 (EFSA)

On November 8, 2023, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) published a report in the EFSA Journal. Presenting the results of the zoonoses monitoring and surveillance activities carried out in 2022 in 27 Member States (MSs), the United  Kingdom  (Northern  Ireland), and  11  non-MSs. In 2022, the first and second most reported human zoonoses were campylobacteriosis and salmonellosis, respectively. The number of cases of campylobacteriosis and salmonellosis remained stable compared to 2021. Yersiniosis was humans' third most reported zoonosis,  followed by  Shiga toxin-producing  Escherichia coli  (STEC)  and  Listeria monocytogenes infections. The number of deaths from outbreaks was the highest ever reported in the EU in the last 10 years, mainly caused by L. monocytogenes and, to a lesser degree, by Salmonella. Salmonella, particularly S. Enteritidis, remained the most frequently reported causative agent for foodborne outbreaks. Norovirus (and other calicivirus) was associated with the highest number of human outbreaks. @
