According to Farmscape.ca, the executive director of the U.S. based Swine Health Information Center reports a dramatic decline in the number of cases of Seneca Valley Virus.
Swine Health Information Center executive director Dr. Paul Sundberg says that "right now the veterinary diagnostic labs are reporting that their cases that they're getting in have noticeably decreased over the fall and coming into the cooler months. Historically Seneca Valley Virus has been a virus that we've seen just sporadically but primarily in the summer months, an infection or 2 or 5 during the summer months.
This year we've had many more than that and we didn't know for sure if the virus would quiet down during the winter as it had before because of the increase in incidence and also the genetic variability of the virus.
But the good news is that it appears, at least at this point, that the incidence is going down remarkable and we hopefully are heading into a much quieter time over the winter."
