This is an update to an article posted on our website last year regarding Alabama Rot. The original article can be viewed here.

The number of cases is down in the first three months of 2019 compared to 2018.

In 2018 to the end of March there were 34 CRGV confirmed cases against 10 to the end of March this year. The fact that confirmed cases are down this year, at a period when weather conditions in the first three months of 2019 have been warmer and dryer has been noted and provides a further anecdotal link between CRGV and the UK weather conditions.

This anecdotal assessment still has to be scientifically confirmed before any firm conclusions
can be made.
