From: Infectivity, transmission and pathogenicity of H5 highly pathogenic avian influenza clade (H5N8 and H5N2) United States index viruses in Pekin ducks and Chinese geese

Figure 3

Mean oropharyngeal (OP) and cloacal (CL) viral shed from 2-week-old Pekin ducks directly inoculated (A, C, E, G) or contact-exposed (B, D, F, H) with H5N8 and H5N2 HPAI viruses. Ducks were inoculated with 102, 104 and 106 EID50 of either virus and titers determined by qRRT-PCR. Bars represent the standard deviation of the mean. Swabs from which virus was not detected were given a numeric value of 101.7 EID50/mL.
