Impact of a foot and mouth disease outbreak on Australia
The Council of Australian Governments, as part of its review of national whole-of-government frameworks for the prevention, preparedness for, and management of a major animal disease emergency such as an FMD outbreak, asked the Productivity Commission to report on the impact of a foot and mouth disease outbreak on Australia as an input to that process. The report found that a major outbreak could cost Australia over $9 billion in lost export earnings over an eight year period and could reduce Australia’s GDP by between $8 billion and $13 billion. It found that control of an outbreak would require a major logistical effort by all governments and the livestock industry, at a cost of between $30 million and $450 million, depending on how long it took to achieve control.
