On May 18, Manitoba's Chief Veterinary Officer confirmed yet another case of the Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus (PEDv) in southeast Manitoba.

The latest case, which is the fifth this month, was at a sow operation within the same area as the previous four sites.

Manitoba Agriculture’s Emergency Operation Centre is continuing to operate, and is assisting the affected producer and conducting a full disease investigation.

All veterinarians with clients within the area have been made aware of the site's location.

All producers are strongly encouraged to ensure full compliance of their existing biosecurity protocols.

This latest case of PEDv marks the 15th on-farm case discovered in Manitoba since February of 2014.

On May 16, Manitoba's Chief Veterinary Officer confirmed positive test results for PEDv from another finisher operation in southeast Manitoba.

This farm is within 5 kilometres of the three infected farms that were confirmed PEDv positive earlier this month.

Manitoba Agriculture’s Emergency Operation Centre is continuing to operate and is assisting the affected producer and conducting a full disease investigation.

In light of this fourth case farm within a 5-km area, Manitoba Pork is encouraging producers within the area to restrict vehicles from entering their yards.

Signage or temporary barriers should be erected to ensure compliance.

This latest case of PEDv marked the 14th on-farm case in Manitoba.
