[Correspondence] Syndromic surveillance during the Paris terrorist attacks

Two separate terrorist attacks took place in the Paris area in 2015. The first attack began on Jan 7 with a massacre at the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and ended 2 days later with two sieges involving major police operations. 17 people were murdered and 20 people were injured. The second attack was a series of coordinated assaults on Nov 13, during which three suicide bombers struck outside a filled stadium and mass shootings took place at cafés, restaurants, and a concert hall. Together, the attackers killed 130 people and injured more than 300 people.
