Figure 4. Porcine deltacoronavirus (PDCoV) viral RNA shedding patterns in samples collected from cloaca (A) and trachea (B) of infected and uninfected chicks, and from cloaca (C) and trachea (D) of sentinel chicks in a study of infection and transmission of porcine deltacoronavirus in poultry. Inoculum viral titer represents the genomic equivalent (GE) of inoculum administered at onset, 9.71 log10 GE/mL. Boxplots represent distribution of values; tops and bottoms of boxes represent 10%–90% range of values; horizontal lines within boxes indicate medians; error bars represent SEM. Dashed line indicates detection limit of 4.6 log10 GE/mL of PDCoV in samples. dpi, days postinoculation; GE, genomic equivalent.
