Updated: Added December 2018 summary.
The Public Health England (PHE) emerging infections and zoonoses section uses an integrated horizon scanning approach which combines information on both human and animal health, to identify and assess outbreaks and incidents of new and emerging infectious diseases, reported nationally and internationally.
PHE logs the information daily and, on behalf of the Human Animal Infections and Risk Surveillance group, produces a monthly summary of those incidents or events which might pose a public health threat to the UK population. The summary is widely circulated within PHE, to the Department of Health and Social Care, to colleagues working in animal health, and internationally.
