SHIC Notes New Outbreak of SVA in Brazil
Published by Paul Sundberg at December 18, 2018
In August 2015, a new, national outbreak of Seneca Valley A (SVA) began in the US, just one month after the Swine Health Information Center (SHIC) started operations. Looking back, we discovered Brazil had gone through an SVA outbreak during the late fall and winter of 2014-15 in the US, during their summer season, preceding the US occurrence.
The initial expression of African swine fever (ASF) in an ASF-free country like the US could be variable and unpredictable due to the myriad of factors including the epidemiology of ASF and the broad diversity of virulence among ASF virus isolates.
