Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus (PEDv)
PEDv can affect all pigs and is often fatal to newborn pigs. However, it does not affect any other species, including humans, and is not a food safety issue.
PEDv is primarily transmitted through feces. Clinical signs include excessive scouring, wasting, vomiting, and newborn mortality. Washing and disinfecting livestock trailers is the most effective way to prevent its spread. PEDv is a reportable disease in Manitoba. Find out more:
PEDv and SDCv – as well as TGE – are all coronaviruses. SDCv shows very similar clinical signs to PEDv and can be prevented in the same ways. SDCv has been found in U.S. and Canada. Find out more:
