Inclusion of Official Counts of SARS-CoV Disease in National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System Data Presentation

MMWR. 2003;52:1210

Beginning with this issue of MMWR, severe acute respiratory syndrome–associated coronavirus (SARS-CoV) disease incidence data are being added to Table I, Summary of provisional cases of selected notifiable diseases, United States. Effective July 1, 2003, SARS-CoV disease was added to the list of nationally notifiable conditions as designated by the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists and with concurrence from CDC.1 The National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System (NNDSS) is the official source of SARS-CoV disease case counts.

No SARS-CoV disease cases were reported in the United States from July 1, 2003 (27th week) through December 6, 2003 (49th week). However, as an aid to future data interpretation and comparison, SARS-CoV incidence data were included in NNDSS for the first half of the year (week ending January 4, 2003, [first week] through week ending June 28, 2003 [26th week]). Cumulative SARS-CoV disease incidence data for MMWR weeks 1-49 (week ending December 6, 2003) are presented in Table I.
