There were significant difference in mean annual incidence rates (χ 2=782.46, P<0.01). There were 71 events of respiratory infectious diseases and 66 events of intestinal infectious diseases, accounting for 51.45% and 47.83%, respectively. The annual incidence peaks of public health emergencies of infectious diseases were during March-June and October–December. The events mainly occurred in kindergartens and primary schools among each stage of school periods with 51 and 46 incidences respectively, which accounted for 70. 29% of the total number of public health emergencies in schools.

          【摘要】 目的 分析北京市学校突发传染病事件流行病学特征, 为学校传染病防控提供策略依据。 方法 通过“中国疾 病预防控制信息系统”子系统“突发公共卫生事件管理信息系统”, 获取 2010—2020 年北京市报告的学校突发传染病事件 信息。 结果 2010—2020 年, 北京市学校报告突发公共卫生事件数 146 起, 其中学校突发传染病事件 138 起, 发病人数 4 291 例, 波及或暴露人数 185 179 人, 罹患率为 2.32%, 年平均罹患率差异有统计学意义 (χ 2=782.46, P<0.01)。学校突发 传染病事件主要为呼吸道和肠道传染病, 分别为 71 和 66 起, 分别占学校传染病事件总数的 51.45% 和 47.83%。时间分布 上, 每年的 3—6 月和 10—12 月为传染病类突发事件的髙发期。人群和病种分布上, 托幼机构和小学阶段报告的传染病类 突发事件最多, 分别为 51 和 46 起, 共占学校报告事件总数的 70.29%, 且以手足口病和水疸为主;水疸和其他感染性腹泻 病是中学和大学阶段传染病类突发事件的首位。 结论 传染病事件在北京市学校突发公共卫生事件中占主导, 呼吸道和 肠道传染病是学校防控的关键。学校应加强症状监测, 并根据不同年龄段的特点实施有针对性的防控措施, 同时规范疫情 处置工作, 在疫情髙峰期加强学校传染病的防治和预案演练。
