Following publication of the original article [1], the authors identified an error in Fig. 4. The immunohistochemical result of intestine of inoculated mouse was unfortunately misplaced, although the error would not change the interpretation and conclusions of this work. The wrong photo has been corrected in the new figure. Scale bars of each image were also complemented.

The correct figure is given below.

Fig. 4

Histopathological analyses of tissues of inoculated mice and ferrets. (A) Hematoxylin and Eosin (H-E) stain and immunohistochemical (IHC) analyses of tissues of inoculated mice. (B) H-E stain and IHC analyses of lungs of inoculated ferrets. Red scale bar for IHC = 50 μm. Black scale bar for H-E = 200 μm
