Abstract

The Statewide pertussis outbreak continued through to the end of July (Figure 8). In July 249 cases were reported. To the end of August, more than 1,700 cases had been reported in NSW (Table 8). The number of cases of meningococcal disease in July was more than the expected number for this time of year. Among the cases reported in August was a cluster of three at a college complex at the University of NSW (see page 69).
