A Gaussian diffusion model was applied to an epizootic of pseudorabies in ten swine herds located in Decatur County, Indiana, USA to test the hypothesis that the virus can be spread via aerosol. The epizootic occurred during January to March, 1988, spreading through ten farms across an area of about 150 km2. The model included a receptor component that provided an estimate of viruses received by the pig within an enclosed barn. Results show that the diffusion model can explain the spread of the… CONTINUE READING
