SCTLD was first discovered in the Kristin Jacobs Coral ECA in 2014 and remains present in the region. As of November 19, 2021, a total of 1,218 colonies were treated by the coral disease interventions strike teams in the Coral ECA since 2018 (including the experimental sites, but not the large priority corals in section 4.2) totaling 802 meters of treatment. Between July 1 and May 31, 2022, 320 colonies were treated. The amount and species of corals treated in broad scale recon surveys indicates that there are still some rare survivors of the highly susceptible brain coral species in the area and some are still succumbing to the disease.
