The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) has released a new Threat Reports app, a free and open access application that gives users direct access to key updates and reports on communicable disease threats of concern to the EU on mobile devices.
The app can be searched by specific disease or virus - from avian influenza to Zika, or by specific report type - including the weekly Communicable Disease Threat Report (CDTR), rapid risk assessments and epidemiological updates.
The app offers the possibility to read reports offline through My Folder and to receive push notifications of new reports. The application is free for use to the general public while ECDC partners can access additional reports by logging in with their ECDC credentials.
