Morbidity is presented by serogroup of the isolated Neisseria meningitidis strain, time of onset of the disease in addition to the place of living, age and sex of the patient. A long-term group B epidemic with high incidence and case fatality rates in the age groups below 5 years and between 13 and 19-20 years is the main characteristics of the situation.
