Abstract

Mass gathering events may pose an increased risk for outbreak of infectious diseases, and a potential for rapid international spread [1,2]. Even events not considered relevant from the public health point of view can have a big media impact. The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) has on several occasions given support to the European Union Member States (EU MS) during sporting events such as the Olympic Games and football championships to ensure the rapid detection of possible public health risks [3-6].
