Thank you. Perhaps I might give a bit of precision on that.
One is the aspect of looking at what kind of expertise is needed. In these very complex investigations, we need to piece together all the information. Veterinary epidemiologists and those who can look at the surveillance and do the modelling, those kinds of expertise, do exist in CFIA. We have offered that to the Manitoba government. The provincial chief veterinary office has been in contact with us and we are doing that.
The second part is the diagnostic. There are confirmatory tests available should we need to test any swabs for the PED virus. We continue to offer our laboratory support right there in Winnipeg, Manitoba. So we can provide that. Secondly, one of the lines of inquiry has been, earlier, if you go back in the media, in Ontario, that it was linked to feed: spray-dried plasma. Manitoba has also made a request to us for some help in terms of the diagnostic on that particular aspect of the feed testing. We have procured the samples and are processing them in other laboratories. It's a very precise test. There's a component on which we have the capacity, capability, and expertise, and we are providing that.
We have a very open offer to Manitoba Agriculture, as well as the office of the chief veterinary officer of Manitoba, that in any situation where they need our veterinarians' advice, our inspection advice, or any other diagnostic advice, we would be available. We will certainly be available 24-7 to help them out with that.
