Date of submission:
In the article ‘Reducing the barriers against analytical epidemiological studies in investigations of local foodborne disease outbreaks in Germany - a starter kit for local health authorities’, by Werber et al., a small toolbox consisting of a strategic concept and a simple software tool (‘Linelist tool’) for data entry and analysis that was developed for competent public health authorities in Germany was introduced. The Linelist tool should assist in conducting analytical epidemiological studies, primarily in the investigation of food-borne disease outbreaks that occur locally after a single exposure event (‘point source outbreaks’).
The Linelist tool is now available also in English and can be downloaded from the website of the Robert Koch Institute under www.rki.de/linelisttool .
