E. coli bacteraemia
The counts and rates of all reported E. coli bacteraemia has increased steadily since the inception of mandatory surveillance of E. coli bacteraemia in July 2011 (figure 5). There has been an increase of 31% (8,275 to 10,864 cases) and 28% (61.7 to 78.8 cases per 100,000 population) in the counts and rates of all reported E. coli bacteraemia between July-September 2011 and July-September 2016, with seasonal peaks generally reported between July and September each year. This overall increase has also been observed in the most recent quarters. Between July-September 2015 and July-September 2016, there was an 8% increase in both counts (10,087 to 10,864 cases) and rates (73.1 to 78.8 cases per 100,000 population) of all reported cases. Over the same period (July-September 2015 to July-September 2016), the rate of all E. coli bacteraemia reported in England was higher among females (74.0 cases per 100,000 population) compared to males (69.6 cases per 100,000 population).
