While we know that the deadly COVID-19 doesn’t spread from animals and pets it’s affecting them due to humans. After the news of a pet dog and a Tiger going positive, it was time for two pet cats. The case is from the U.S. which is the worst-hit country from coronavirus.
Two pet cats in New York state have tested positive for the coronavirus. The pets have mild respiratory illnesses and are expected to recover. They might have caught the virus from people in their households or neighborhoods.
The federal Centers for Disease Control and the U.S. Department of Agriculture believe that its a case of transmission from humans. While there are human to animal cases the authorities in the U.S have rejected the possibility of the animal to human transmission.
Peet owners in the U.S. with COVID-19 are asked to avoid contact with their animals as much as possible, including wearing a face covering while caring for them.
