Prevalance of Vibrio parahaemolyticus:
Major outbreaks have occurred in the U.S. during the warmer months of the year. Sporadic cases occur along all coasts of the U.S.

Nationwide, an average of 190 culture-confirmed
cases, 30 hospitalizations, and 1-3 deaths are reported each
year. However, it is estimated that there are truly as many
as 3000 cases (most not culture confirmed), 40 hospitalizations
and 7 deaths. (Source: excerpt from Vibrio parahaemolyticus: DBMD)
Incidence of Vibrio parahaemolyticus:
In 1997, the incidence of diagnosed
V. parahaemolyticus infection in Food Net sites was .25/100,000. (Source: excerpt from Vibrio parahaemolyticus (General): DBMD)
This page presents a variety of statistics about Vibrio parahaemolyticus.
The term 'prevalence' of Vibrio parahaemolyticus usually refers to the estimated population
of people who are managing Vibrio parahaemolyticus at any given time.
The term 'incidence' of Vibrio parahaemolyticus refers to the annual diagnosis rate,
or the number of new cases of Vibrio parahaemolyticus diagnosed each year.
Hence, these two statistics types can differ:
a short-lived disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence,
but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence.
