CDC had been notified of 546 ill persons with confirmed Cyclospora infection from 31 states in 2015. Most of these persons—319 (58%) of 546—experienced onset of illness on or after May 1, 2015, and did not have a history of international travel within two weeks before illness onset. These 319 persons were from the following 23 states: Arkansas (3), California (2), Connecticut (5), Florida (13), Georgia (26), Iowa (1), Illinois (9), Kansas (2), Massachusetts (12), Maryland (1), Michigan (2), Missouri (1), Montana (3), Nebraska (1), New Jersey (7), New Mexico (2), New York (excluding NYC) (10), New York City (22), North Carolina (1), Texas (179), Utah (1), Virginia (3), Washington (2), and Wisconsin (11).
*N=319. Data are current as of 9/14/15 (3pm EDT). Data are preliminary and subject to change. These cases occurred in persons with no history of travel outside of the United States or Canada in the 14 days before onset of illness. Cases are classified by state of residence of the ill person. Illnesses that began after 8/10/15 might not have been reported yet due to the time it takes between when a person becomes ill and when the illness is reported. It is not yet known whether all reported cases are part of the same outbreak.
