Answer

C jejuni infections are extremely common worldwide, although exact figures are not available, particularly in low- and middle-income countries. In high-income countries, the incidence has been estimated to be 4.4-9.3 per 1000 population. [7] New Zealand reported the highest national campylobacteriosis rate, which peaked in May 2006 at 400 per 100,000 population. [8] After implementation of a national strategy to reduce foodborne Campylobacter infections, the rates subsequently fell in 2006-2008. [9]
