Skip to comments.Pig virus migrates to US

Striegel said there is "no evidence" it affects pork products... the disease can spread quickly and has killed entire populations of pigs under 7 days old.. by the time they're weaned at around 3 weeks, death loss can be around 80 percent or in severe cases upwards of 100 percent.
The virus has been confirmed Arkansas, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and South Dakota, according to the American Association of Swine Veterinarians. It had been thought only to have "migrated to Europe from China"... (US) outbreaks are not required to be reported to federal officials, so the extent of the spread is difficult to determine...
