US - The number of pig farm samples that are confirmed positive for porcine epidemic diarrhoea virus (PEDV) in the last week was 78, five premises were confirmed with porcine deltacoronavirus (PDCoV) and 11 with the dual infection (PEDV and PDCoV).
For the latest week – 22 to 28 February 2015 – there were 78 new confirmed positive premises for PEDV and nine presumed positive, according to the latest report from USDA APHIS made available by the American Association of Swine Veterinarians (AASV).
For the same period, five premises was confirmed positive for PDCoV but none was presumed positive, and there were also 11 confirmed dual infection (both PEDV and PDCoV) and none presumed positive.
The total numbers of premises with confirmed positive status for the current week are 969, 42 and 44 for PEDV, PDCoV and the dual infection, respectively.
Since 5 June, for PEDV, there have been 1,015 confirmed positive premises, 407 presumed positive and 36 previously positive premises that have attained negative status.
