Estonia sees infections rise but outbreaks fall

Results of 2022 zoonosis monitoring in Estonia showed that the number of foodborne infections had risen, though the number of outbreaks had declined from the 2021 figure. Most detected Salmonella samples were taken from chicken and chicken meat products, and there was a small rise in the proportion of those that were not compliant. Notable serotypes included the usually relatively infrequent S. Napoli and S. Enteritidis, both of which caused two outbreaks with six cases each. These, along with three others caused by S. Typhimurium, S. Enteritidis, and S. Minnesota, contributed to a total of 134 salmonellosis cases- up from the previous year- and particularly high prevalence amongst children and those over the age of fifty.

As for Campylobacter, 211 cases were observed, the majority (126) of which were attributable to C. jejuni. Cases raised particularly sharply from June to August, out of which 45 percent were hospitalized. Similarly, those infected due to consumption of protein sources contained extra-abroad (like Turkey and Spain) heavily influenced figures, accounting for nearly half the incidences.

In terms of Listeria, calls were down astounding seven cases compared to five the year prior.
