New research from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill suggests that a strain of coronavirus, known as swine acute diarrhea syndrome coronavirus, that has recently alarmed the swine industry may have the potential to spread to humans as well. Science Daily reports that while SADS-CoV, which causes severe diarrhea and vomiting and has been especially deadly to young piglet, has not been known to affect humans to-date, the COVID-19 pandemic serves as a potent reminder that many coronavirus strains found in animals have the potential to infect humans as well — an effect known as spillover. Even if the virus never crosses over to humans though its spread has the potential to wreak economic havoc in many countries across the globe that rely on the pork industry.
