  8. Study: Pig virus is easily transmitted among chickens and turkeys

    Jan 24, 2020

    By: Emily Caldwell 

    The first animal study of a pig virus’s potential to jump to another species shows that the virus, once introduced to a select group of birds, is easily transmitted to healthy chickens and turkeys.

    The researchers who led this work were part of a team that previously found in a lab setting that the virus could infect cells from multiple species, including chickens and humans.
