PED Virus Survives More Than One Week in Drinking Water

2 February 2014, at 5:34pm

US - The Porcine Epidemic Diarrhoea virus (PEDv) retained infectivity in drinking water for more than one week, according to new research.

Samples of PEDv negative ground water and recycled water were autoclaved, spiked with PEDv, and then stored at room temperature (around 25°C), reports the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine. Samples were taken weekly from the stored water to infect 10-day-old pigs in bio-assay.

Bio-assay results showed virus infectivity in the one-week sample and inactivity in the two-week sample both drinking and recycled water.
