Half Alabama Rot confirmed cases reported in New Forest, Greater Manchester, Guildford

Reposted to

There have been forty six confirmed cases of Alabama Rot in dogs in England between December 2012 to December 2014 (a further one case was in Northern Ireland):

Twenty five cases - more than half of all cases (54% of all confirmed cases) are in three cluster regions: the New Forest - sixteen cases (34%), Greater Manchester - five cases (11%) and Guildford, Surrey - four cases (9%). (Street 2014c)

A further twenty one cases (46%) were reported in the rest of England.

Further analysis by a statistician is required to determine whether these clusters occur by chance.
