Canada: confirmed cases of Swine DeltaCoronavirus

These are the first confirmed cases of SDCV in Canada.

Tuesday 25 March 2014 (3 years 10 months 25 days ago)

According to Manitoba Pork, as of March 14, 2014, the Animal Health Laboratory (AHL) has diagnosed Swine DeltaCoronavirus (SDCV) in samples from six Ontario pig farms. This pathogen was detected as a result of follow up testing on farms with clinical signs of vomiting and diarrhea, but that tested negative for Transmissible Gastroenteritis (TGE) virus and Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea (PED) virus. Samples of porcine plasma have also tested positive for SDCV at AHL and Iowa State University. The samples submitted were from the same batch that tested positive for PEDV in February 2014.

These are the first confirmed cases of SDCV in Canada.

In light of the US findings, AHL developed a PCR test for SDCV, and began testing for the virus in samples from farms that had clinical signs in pigs, yet tested negative for PEDV and TGEV.
