What is being done to address Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv)?

Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv) is a coronavirus that kills newborn pigs within a short number of days. PEDv is not a risk for people; it is not zoonotic, so therefore it poses no risk to other animals or humans. Also, it poses no risk to food safety. But the price of pork will be affected by PEDv. More piglets are dying, reducing the flow of pigs into the meat market. Supply and demand will come into play and the meat markets will adjust.
