US - The number of pig farm samples that are confirmed positive for porcine epidemic diarrhoea virus (PEDV) in the last week was 55, two premises were confirmed with porcine deltacoronavirus (PDCoV) and five with the dual infection (PEDV and PDCoV).
For the latest week – 8 to 14 February 2015 – there were 55 new confirmed positive premises for PEDV and four presumed positive, according to the latest report from USDA APHIS.
For the same period, two premises were confirmed positive for PDCoV but none was presumed positive, and there were five confirmed dual infection (both PEDV and PDCoV) and one presumed positive.
The total numbers of premises with confirmed positive status for the current week are 887, 37 and 32 for PEDV, PDCoV and the dual infection, respectively.
Since 5 June, for PEDV, there have been 913 confirmed positive premises, 397 presumed positive and 24 previously positive premises that have attained negative status.
For PDCoV, the total for the same period are 43, 26 and five, respectively. For the dual infection, the totals are 32, 27 and one, respectively.
