Syndromic Surveillance Systems for Mass Gatherings A Scoping Review
Spector, E., Zhang, Y., Guo, Y., et al. (2022). Syndromic Surveillance Systems for Mass Gatherings: A Scoping Review. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. 19(8):4673.
The authors reviewed literature that analyzed near real-time data collection by public health officials, known as syndromic surveillance, to detect public health threats during mass gathering scenarios. The review found that syndromic surveillance is not necessarily a reliable way of detecting public health concerns at mass gathering events.
