What Were the Most Reported Infectious Diseases Between July and September 2020?

With a lot of information being shared on various social media platforms, knowing which information is true or false is a challenge.

When it comes to infectious disease outbreaks and reports, one of the platforms I have relied on is ProMed mail https://promedmail.org

With ProMed mail one is able to get email updates on various infectious disease outbreaks of plants, humans and animals as they occur around the world.

If you are interested in infectious disease outbreaks, when and where they happened, ProMed mail could be one place to start.

To answer the question I posed in the title of this post, please look at the map below, courtesy of ISID and ProMed mail https://twitter.com/isid_org/status/1321129563401969667?s=21
