Note:

Week 1 is the week ending Friday 7 January 2000.

These figures are affected by a variable delay between slaughter and confirmation as a result of the various times required for laboratory diagnosis and administrative procedures. The time between slaughter and confirmation is, on average, six to eight weeks but may on occasion be considerably longer.
