The Animal and Plant Health Agency has not made an assessment of the impact of rabbit haemorrhagic disease type 2 on rabbit populations, but has followed the course of the disease since 2010. The disease currently has a wide geographical distribution, and significant local mortalities have been caused by type 2 rabbit haemorrhagic disease in local wild rabbit populations.
