The COVID-19 Surveillance Bulletin describes COVID-19 activity in Northern Ireland and is produced Monday to Friday by the PHA.

COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a type of virus called Sars-CoV-2 (coronavirus).

The Public Health Agency Health Protection surveillance team has established surveillance systems which are used to monitor COVID-19 activity in Northern Ireland. The systems allow us to monitor trends, inform public health measures to reduce COVID-19 transmission, and to measure the impact of public health measures to reduce COVID-19 transmission in both hospital and community settings. 

As this is an emerging pandemic the systems used will constantly evolve and the complexity of the analysis will increase. All updates are available through the link below:
