The authors wish to make the following corrections to this paper [1
In the abstract, the sentence “This study describes for the first time the detection of free BLV RNA in blood from BLV-infected asymptomatic cows” should be “This study describes the detection of free BLV RNA in blood from BLV-infected asymptomatic cows”.
In the discussion section, we eliminated the sentence “Therefore, our results suggest that BLV viral expression, reactivation, and/or replication could be present during the asymptomatic period in the naturally BLV-infected animals”, and added the sentence “This is in line with recently reported data [Jaworski et al., BMC Vet Res 2019, 15, 150], and reinforces the evidence suggesting that BLV viral expression, reactivation and/or replication could be present during the asymptomatic period in naturally BLV-infected animals”.
Also, a new reference was added [2
