Notes

The Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) is responsible for the surveillance and reporting of human diseases. A nationwide notification system is regulated by the Ordinance on the Declaration of Observations of Communicable Human Diseases (RS 818.101.126 Ordonnance du DFI du 1 décembre 2015 sur la déclaration d'observations en rapport avec les maladies transmissibles de l'homme), which is based on the Federal Act on the Control of Communicable Human Diseases (RS 818.101 Loi fédérale du 28 septembre 2012 sur la lutte contre les maladies transmissibles de l’homme). Every medical practitioner and laboratory is obliged to report the occurrence or identification of certain notifiable diseases. The current situation is accessible online and data is transmitted to the World Health Organization (WHO):
