Vibrio Infection Rates

Vibrio Infection Rates

While the rates of infection for most food-borne diseases have decreased in recent years, the rate of Vibrio infections has increased (rates are shown relative to 1996–1998 rates, signified by the line intersecting 1.00 on the vertical axis). Because Vibrio thrives in warm waters, infection rates have the potential to rise as ocean temperatures increase. (Source: CDC)
