Manitoba reports more cases of virus that has killed millions of pigs in U.S.
WINNIPEG - Manitoba is reporting more cases of a virus that has killed millions of baby pigs in the United States.
The province says three more pigs have been found with porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED) this week, but not at a hog farm.
The sick animals were detected at what the government calls a high-traffic area in eastern Manitoba â€” a description that could mean livestock yards, trucks or a slaughter facility.
To date there has been one case at a farm in Manitoba and seven cases found in high-traffic areas.
Since last May the virus, which is not a threat to human health, has swept through more than 5,700 farms in 30 states in the U.S.
The highly contagious virus has also been found in recent months on farms in Ontario, Quebec and Prince Edward Island.
