The incidence of Seneca Valley Virus (Senecavirus A) has increased in 2015 compared to historical incidence in other years. Keep in mind that so far in 2015 we’ve had confirmed SVV from only 20 – 30 cases from across the U.S., the incidence is low but it is much higher than the 2 or 3 sporadic cases per year that is our historical experience.
SHIC is working with academics, researchers, USDA and others to help understand the scope of the cases and the role SVV has in causing clinical disease.
The Swine Health Information Center has published an updated fact sheet on Senecavirus A.
