  • Number of cases reported during this specific outbreak


 B1. Epidemiological Determinants and Risk Factors

Analyze the EPIDEMIOLOGICAL DETERMINANTS and RISK FACTORS of this specific outbreak that you have presented in section B.

What are epidemiological determinants? A determinant is anything that increases disease frequency in a population. Risk Factors and Transmission are both epidemiological determinants. However, you should discuss other determinants relevant to your outbreak here such as infectivity (how easily it is spread?), virulence (how deadly is it?), mode of transmission (Vector? Contact? Aerosol?), climate considerations (i.e. does the vector survive arid or cold temperatures?), antigenic stability (i.e. Influenza) and any other appropriate variable.

Risk factors typically address the condition of the host (patient) and environment. Examples of risk factors would be age, occupation, immune-compromised status, unvaccinated status, lack of prior exposure to the disease, smoking, living in close quarters (i.e. military, prisons, college dormitories), vector exposure, etc.


B2. Route of Transmission

Refer to cohort. 


B3. Impact in My Community at a Systems Level

Refer to cohort.

(e.g., the functioning of schools, local government, businesses, hospitals). Remember: These are your thoughts/ideas related to a hypothetical situation should a worst-case scenario of an outbreak impact your community.


B4. Reporting Protocol for an Outbreak in My Community

Refer to cohort.

 Many states have legislation related to communicable disease reporting protocol. Be specific in terms of your county and state.


 B5. Two Strategies to Prevent an Outbreak in My Community
