Foot & Mouth Disease

in the North of England

A rough map of the locations of F&M disease in the North of England.
Most marks represent more than one case.

It is interesting to look at the early maps and see how it has spread.
On the later ones look for odd isolated cases appearing away from the main infected areas.

Mid May shows isolated clusters of cases appearing in a matter of days.

In fact one of these "isolated clusters" developed into the major outbreak around Settle and Skipton in North Yorkshire. Compare the 7th May map (no cases in Settle/Skipton) with one at the end of May or early June.

Another cluster appears on the 23rd August in Northumberland by the 27th this had grown to 11 cases. The last case in this county had been 12 weeks before. The nearest concurrent cases are the ones to the south of Penrith, about 30 miles distant over high moorland.

This is the last map since there have been no more confirmed cases since 30th September 2001.
