Southern Finland Water Supply 2000

A community wide outbreak of Campylobacter jejuni occurred in a rural town in southern Finland. The multivariate analysis indicated that drinking unboiled water from the municipal water supply was significantly associated with illness. Campylobacter jejuni was isolated from one tap water sample. The water isolate and most human isolates were indistinguishable by pulsed field gel electrophoresis(PFGE).
