Winter dysentery: a coronavirus-like agent in the faeces of beef and dairy cattle with diarrhoea



Winter dysentery: a coronavirus-like agent in the faeces of beef and dairy cattle with diarrhoea



Veterinary Record 110(16): 385-385



A blood sample was taken 24-48 hours after the appearance of diarrhoea and again 3-4 weeks later, during convalescence, from 104 cattle aged 6 months to 8 years in six beef and dairy herds in the Yonne Department of France during the winters of 1979/80 and 1980/81. Faecal samples were taken from 26; electron microscopy revealed in nine of these 26 samples (at least one per herd) coronavirus-like forms, frequently associated with a bacteriophage.
