Water safety in buildings, published by the World Health Organization in 2011, defines an outbreak as: ‘An epidemic limited to localized increase in the incidence of a disease (e.g. in a village, town or closed institution) (McMichael et al., 2003).
‘A waterborne outbreak is a situation in which at least two people experience a similar illness after exposure to water (and possibly food) and the evidence suggests a probable water source (WHO, 2007).’
