3. Results
[Complete the heading below and/or provide other headings relevant to the purpose of the data
analysis.]

3.1

Quality of data

[Describe the quality of the data used in the analysis. Were there any issues with it that should
be taken into consideration when looking at the findings?]
[Text]

3.2

Rate of spread

[Describe what the findings of the data analysis indicate regarding rate of spread of the risk
organism spatially, temporally and by other relevant property or animal classes. Use epidemic
curve, estimated dissemination rate and generation interval.]
[Text]

3.3

Old and new distributions

[Describe old and new distributions of the risk organism spatially, temporally and according to
other relevant property or animal classes, e.g. farm type, industry sectors, managed vs wild
populations. Use maps, kernel-smoothe and network analysis techniques, as appropriate.]
[Text]

3.4

New hosts

[Describe what the findings of the data analysis indicate regarding current and new hosts for the
risk organism.]
[Text]

3.5

New conveyors or vectors

[Describe what the findings of the data analysis indicate regarding current and new conveyors
or vectors for the risk organism.]
[Text]

3.6

Response efficiency and effectiveness

[Describe the progress of the response according to operational tasks: organism management,
surveillance and movement control.]
[Text]

3.7

Undetected spread

[Assess surveillance methods and reliability for their detection of the organism. Describe
magnitude of potential undetected cases.]
[Text]

3.8

Predicted spread

[Describe spatial and temporal magnitude of predicted epidemic using appropriate models.]
[Text]

3.9

Other

[Report other finding of the data analysis, as required.]

4. Discussion
[Summarise findings outlined in subheadings above, focussing on:

data quality and the effect this may have on drawing conclusions

spread

response effectiveness and efficiency and estimates of undetected spread

predictions.

Discuss the implications of findings for the response effort and the need for further resource.]
