Outbreak of Cryptosporidiosis Among Responders to a Rollover of a Truck Carrying Calves — Kansas, April 2013 

In April 2013, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment was notified of two cases of cryptosporidiosis among emergency responders to a tractor-trailer rollover. The truck was carrying approximately 350 preweaned Holstein calves. This report describes the outbreak investigation that followed. This outbreak is the first reported instance of both law enforcement and volunteer emergency responders contracting cryptosporidiosis, with transmission of Cryptosporidium attributed solely to direct contact with animals and their feces.

Heterosexual sex is the second most common route of transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in the United States. The National HIV Behavioral Surveillance System (NHBS) collects HIV prevalence and risk behavior data from three populations at high risk for HIV infection: men who have sex with men, injecting drug users, and heterosexuals at increased risk for HIV infection.

Each year, CDC publishes a summary of the cases of notifiable disease reported for the most recent year for which data is available. This report presents a summary of notifiable diseases for 2012.
