After publication of the original article [1], the authors noticed an error in Table 2 in the “Results” section. In the last column the R0 estimated values have been reversed between groups. Consistently with the text, R0 is 5.8 [1.4–18.9] for MDA+ piglets (first row) and 14.8 [6.4–27.1] for MDA piglets (second row). The corrected version of Table 2 is included in this erratum.
