CDC on the ground
Details:
  • Corporate Authors:
    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S.)
  • Description:
    Map of the United States, labelled:

    CDC investigated an outbreak of 166 cases of Salmonella associated with pet bearded dragons in 36 states. Nearly 60% of cases were in children age 5 and younger, and 37% of cases were hospitalized. Salmonella costs ~$365 million/year in direct medical costs.

    Washington State:CDC and the WA Health Dept. investigated an outbreak of deadly "nightmare bacteria" CRE. Disease detectives linked the outbreak to ineffective cleaning protocols for a medical device used in a specific procedure. CDC is working with FDA and clinical groups to prevent similar infections.

    NJ and CA: CDC, FDA, NJ and CA health officials, and a vaccine manufacturer collaborated to quickly secure an investigational new drug license for a meningococcal disease vaccine previously unlicensed in the US. The collaboration resulted in vaccination of 14,000 students in NJ and CA and prevented spread of a deadly form of meningococcal disease among college students.

    Pennsylvania (Philly): CDC tested childhood blood lead levels and environmental samples in a community surrounding a former lead smelting plant in Philadelphia. Children with elevated levels were treated and EPA initiated an environmental cleanup. The approach is applicable for similarly contaminated communities.

    South Carolina: Of employees CDC evaluated at a SC poultry processing plant, 42% had evidence of carpal tunnel syndrome and 39% had hand or wrist symptoms. CDC provided recommendations for musculoskeletal disorder and traumatic injury prevention.

    Texas: CDC provided testing, and recommendations to clinicians and the public while assisting the TX Health Dept. in response to an ongoing outbreak of dengue virus.

    Florida: CDC and FL investigators identified 242 infants with neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) in 3 FL hospitals from 2010 to 2011. In June 2014, NAS became a mandatory reportable condition in FL, enabling public health officials to understand trends and better address the condition.
