Table 1 Proportion of RT-PCR positive results in the study population calculated from June to December 2016

From: Quantifying bluetongue vertical transmission in French cattle from surveillance data

Study area Total n° cattle N° cattle only exposed to vectors RT-PCR + % in all sampled cattle (N° RT-PCR +) RT-PCR + % in sampled cattle only exposed to vectors (N° RT-PCR +)
NE 2468 1255 12.7% (314) 16.3% (205)
SW 2593 961 11.0% (285) 14.7% (141)
Total 5061 2216 11.8% (599) 15.6% (346)
  1. The proportions of RT-PCR positive cattle were calculated in all sampled cattle and in sampled cattle only exposed to vector-borne transmission (popA and popB), in the whole study area and in the NE and SW areas separately.
  2. NE: North–East; SW: South–West; N°: number of; RT-PCR + %: proportion of positive results by RT-PCR, calculated over the whole period from June to December 2016.
