Confirmed Notifiable Disease Cases: England 2015

This dataset provides figures for the number of confirmed Exotic Notifiable Disease investigations carried out by the Animal and Plant Health Agency in England during 2015. Investigations that follow the report of an exotic notifiable disease are called 'report cases'. Notifiable diseases in this context are animal diseases that an animal owner/keeper is under legal obligation to report to the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA), even if there is only a suspicion that an animal may be affected. 'Exotic diseases' are defined as diseases that are not currently present within the United Kingdom.
This dataset is formatted in two sections: the first provides information on who reported suspicion of disease where a report case was instigated as a result of clinical suspicion; the second half of the spreadsheet identifies why an animal was tested where report cases were started as a result of a non-negative lab result. e.g. as part of an active surveillance programme, or as part of pre-breeding tests, etc. Disease is confirmed by the Chief Veterinary Officer following an investigation by APHA which includes clinical investigation and laboratory testing.
