Two pet cats test positive for Covid-19 in New York


Two pet cats test positive for Covid-19 in New York


Two pet cats in New York are the first felines in the United States to test positive for Covid-19.

The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that the cats had tested positive for the virus earlier on Wednesday.

Can you contract Covid-19 from your pets?

Although the owners of the two cats have not been tested for Covid-19, scientists say that it is highly unlikely that the virus would be transmitted from pets to their owners.

Dr Rachael Tarlinton who is associate professor of veterinary virology at the University of Nottingham says, “This is theoretically possible, the same as for any other surface, like a person’s hands or clothing, but we haven’t actually seen this happen in any cases so far.”

The two cats have mild symptoms of respiratory illness and are self-isolating in their homes.
