Foot-and-mouth disease - quantification and size distribution of airborne particles emitted by healthy and infected pigs.

Abstract

There is strong evidence to suggest that foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) can be transmitted by airborne virus up to many kilometres from a virus source. Atmospheric dispersion models are often used to predict where this disease might spread. This study investigated whether FMD virus (FMDV) aerosol has specific characteristics which need to be taken into… (More)
