* Reportable since December 2013. Annual average number of infections reported is for 2014 to 2018.
** Reportable since May 2018.
^ Case definition applies to newborns who are less than 29 days old, therefore rate reported is among infants under the age of one year, rather than among all age groups.

Between 2005 and 2018 there were no cases of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE), cholera, leprosy, or smallpox reported among Middlesex-London residents.
