"Testing and quarantine protocols can offer some protection but experience has shown they are not fool proof, especially where new diseases are concerned, and pathways of infection are far from clear. Protecting the industry against infection is paramount and we look for assurances that no further consignments will come in until industry can be confident that the disease risk is minimal."
"There are still many unknowns related to the outbreak of the virus, and AFIA's goal is to work with industry partners, swine producers, veterinarians and the government to conduct and evaluate research to better understand the cause and transmission routes of PEDV. As a step to find answers, AFIA and industry partner, the Institute for Feed Education & Research, pledged $100,000 to the National Pork Board in May of this year."
BPEX veterinary advisor Derek Armstrong commented: "This work is being carried out by AHVLA and the results will be passed back to the pig unit’s veterinary practice."
"Normally there would be no problem to find pork in Brazil."
