Reports of notifiable infectious diseases were generally
unremarkable for the last part of 1999 (Table 4 and 5,
Figure 3). Compared with previous months, case reports
of hepatitis A, meningococcal disease and salmonellosis
declined in November and December in NSW. To date,
case reports of arbovirus infections and cryptosporidiosis
for this summer have not been as frequent as in some
previous years. However, delays in reports over the holiday
period may account for apparent declines in other diseases.
