But although our lives seemingly stood still for much of the spring and summer, parasites did not stop! This article will provide a brief overview of some of the current parasite hot topics and threats to the UK, taking information from the quarterly Parasite Forecast published on the ESCCAP UK & Ireland website: www.esccapuk.org.uk.
