Cats may be infected with the Coronavirus

A study reported that cats can contract the emerging coronavirus, but dogs are apparently not susceptible to infection, prompting the World Health Organization to say it will take a closer look at the transmission of the virus from humans to pets.

The study found that rodents can also be infected with the SARS-Cove-2 virus, using the scientific term for the virus that causes Covid-19 disease, but researchers have found that dogs, chickens, pigs, and ducks are unlikely to be infected with the virus.

The study aimed to identify animals susceptible to HIV infection so that they can be used to test experimental vaccines to fight the Covid-19 pandemic, which has killed more than 83,000 people worldwide since its appearance in China in early December.

It is believed that the SARS-Cove-2 virus has passed from bats to humans. With the exception of a few cases that have been detected for transmission of cats and dogs, there is no strong evidence that pets can be carriers of the virus.

The result of the tests for a tiger in the Bronx Zoo in New York City, who suffered a dry cough and loss of appetite after contact with a zoo guard with a corona.

The study, which was based on research conducted in China, said that researchers found that cats and rodents are highly susceptible to infection with the virus when they try to infect animals with infection by inserting HIV-infected particles through the nose.

They also found that infection can be transmitted between cats through respiratory droplets.

Infected cats carry the virus in the mouth, nose and small intestine, and small cats that have been exposed to the virus will experience lung, nose and throat pain.

The virus is found on the top of the respiratory system of rodents but does not cause severe disease.

Antibody tests showed that dogs were less likely to be infected with the virus, while no strains of the virus were found in pigs, chickens and ducks vaccinated with the virus.

The World Health Organization said it was working with its partners to check the role that pets could play in the spread of the highly contagious virus.

“We do not believe that pets play any role in transmitting the infection, but we believe it may be possible for the infection to be transmitted from an infected person,” said Maria Van Kerkhof, WHO epidemiologist.
