The 2001 UK outbreak of Foot-and-Mouth Disease (FMD) in the United Kingdom resulted in catastrophic economic losses to the food agriculture sector and to the tourism industry. Detection of FMD in the UK occurred 21 days after the initial suspect infection. Economists and epidemiologists associated with the FAZD Center investigated the economic implications associated with detecting FMD at various days post initial infection during a single FMD event in the USA. They used an epidemiological model coupled with economic analyses to evaluate a hypothetical FMD outbreak in the Central Valley of California, examining the increased cost per hour of delay between 21 and 22 days.

A Manufactured Plague: The History of Foot-and-mouth Disease in Britain
by Dr. Abigail Woods, Center for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine
Dr. Woods is a veterinarian who trained at Cambridge University Veterinary School U.K.
A Manufactured Plague - The History of Foot-and-mouth Disease in Great Britain by Dr Abigail Woods of Center for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine CHoSTM Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is currently regarded as one of the world's worst animal plagues. But how did this label become attached to a curable disease that poses little threat to human health? And why, in the Great Britain and EU epidemic of 2001, did the government's control strategy still rely upon Victorian trade restrictions and mass slaughter? This groundbreaking and well-researched book shows that for over a century, FMD has brought fear, tragedy and sorrow - damaging businesses and shaping international relations. Yet these effects were neither inevitable nor caused by FMD itself but rather were the product of legislation used to control it. In this sense, FMD is a 'manufactured' plague not a natural one. This book turns the spotlight on this process of manufacture, revealing a rich history beset by controversy, in which party politics, class relations, veterinary ambitions, agricultural practices, the priorities of farming and the meat trade, fears for national security and scientific progress all made FMD outbreaks what they are today.
