Mrs Beckett

 

As at 17:30, 12 December 2001, 9578 premises have been affected by foot and mouth disease i.e. premises which have been classified as an Infected Premises, Dangerous Contact or Slaughter on Suspicion on which slaughter of animals has occurred.

 

The following table details all slaughterings on foot and mouth disease affected premises since 30th September 2001. There have been no outbreaks since that date; these figures therefore relate to slaughter on suspicion cases or to dangerous contact cases identified by surveillance bleeding.
