Dr Laura Bellingan, Head of Policy at the Society of Biology, says: “This disease is not treatable and so in this case as in many others the only option is prevention. Proper resourcing of surveillance and biosecurity measures are essential to keep ahead of the inevitable spread of diseases and we remain to be convinced that these are given sufficient priority in terms of investment and influence.”
