WHO IB-VPD and Rotavirus Surveillance Bulletin - October 2020

Dear Colleagues,


We are pleased to share the latest bulletin of the World Health Organization (WHO)-coordinated Global Rotavirus and Invasive Bacterial Vaccine-Preventable Disease (IB-VPD) Surveillance Networks. This bulletin reports the most up-to-date global surveillance data reported to WHO on pediatric diarrhea, meningitis, and pneumonia from the calendar year of 2019. 
As you will notice, surveillance activities for rotavirus and invasive bacterial diseases have been affected by the global COVID-19 pandemic and a number of surveillance sites were not able to report data for the whole year 2019. This bulletin is based on data received at WHO HQ as of 26 October 2020.
If you have trouble viewing the graphics in this bulletin, please open the bulletin in your browser or change your settings to allow image download (instructions here). Please forward the bulletin to other interested parties or share on social media. We appreciate feedback on the bulletin, and you can subscribe or unsubscribe using the link at the bottom. We also welcome new countries who would like to join the network.
Thank you to everyone from staff at the sentinel surveillance hospitals to the country, regional and global partners who make this surveillance possible.

We hope you enjoy the bulletin!

The WHO Global Rotavirus and IB-VPD Surveillance Team
