Negated Notifiable Disease Investigations: Scotland 2011

This dataset provides figures for the number of negated Exotic Notifiable Disease investigations carried out in Scotland during 2011. Investigations that follow the report of an exotic notifiable disease are called 'report cases'. Notifiable diseases 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. A report case is negated if after a clinical examination and in some cases further diagnostic testing there is sufficient evidence for the Chief Veterinary Officer(Scotland) to negate presence of the disease. 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. For further information and explanations of the data included in this dataset, please see the document available for download alongside this dataset titled 'NDI Cases - Additional Information'.
