*Statistical significance of log transformed arithmetic means was determined with 2-way analysis of variance with correction for multiple comparisons and using the Tukey method for pairwise multiple comparisons (GraphPad Prism version 6.0; GraphPad Software Inc, San Diego, CA, USA). Means in the same row followed by the same superscript letter did not differ significantly (p>0.05). Results at day 0 were excluded because virus detected at this time point represented residual inoculum.
