As of Thursday, January 30, 2014, four cases of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea (PED) have been confirmed on Ontario swine farms:
- One in Middlesex County
- Two in Chatham-Kent
- One in Norfolk County
Sampling has also confirmed the presence of the virus at an assembly yard, a trucking yard, and a processing plant.
Given the hardy, virulent nature of PED it is not unexpected to find it present in various locations. The experience in the U.S. has shown us that.
