Two cats in New York were infected with the new coronavirus. This shows impact of corona virus on animals and pets. For the first time in the United States, pets were found to be infected with the new coronavirus. US federal officials announced on Wednesday that two cats from New York were infected with the new coronavirus. The USDA and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say this is the first time the United States has discovered a new crown for household pet infections.
2 cats in New York are infected with a new coronavirus
It is reported that the respiratory symptoms of the two pet cats are not serious and are expected to fully recover. No one in the home of the first pet cat has a new crown. The virus may come from someone other than the cat owner’s family or from the asymptomatic virus carrier in the family.
The owner of the other cat tested positive for new coronavirus before the cat became sick, but the other cat in the family was not sick. The US CDC recommends that for safety reasons, people should reduce contact and interaction between family pets and people or animals outside the family.
Two domestic cats in New York contracted coronavirus, and 7 tigers and lions tested positive
U.S. federal officials said on Wednesday that two pet cats in New York State had positive coronavirus tests. This is the first time a coronavirus has been diagnosed in pets in the United States.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Federal Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said the cats had mild respiratory illnesses and are expected to recover, and they are believed to have contracted the virus from people in their homes or communities. The two cats live in different parts of the state; the US Department of Agriculture and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention did not specify where they were.
In addition, seven tiger and lion viruses tested positive at the Bronx Zoo. Now, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that people do not let their pets come into contact with people or animals at home.
Family veterinarian Wendy Jane McCulloch inspects 8-year-old Ivy in the closed Botanica New York office
Casey Barton Behravesh, the official of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the animal health contact, said the first cat developed after a week of short-term respiratory disease in the owner, but the owner ’s symptoms have not Diagnosed as COVID-19. She said that this animal sometimes goes outdoors and may have contact with infected people in the area.
American authorities say that although it appears that some animals can be infected with viruses from humans, there is no indication that these animals will transmit the virus to humans.
These agencies recommend that all COVID-19 pet owners avoid touching, snuggling, or otherwise contacting their animals, including wearing masks when caring for them.
"We don't want people to panic." Behravesh said: "We don't want people to be afraid of pets, nor do they want people to swarm to test them." "There is no evidence that pets play a role in the spread of this disease."
Dr. Jane Rooney of the US Department of Agriculture said that pets are not recommended for coronavirus testing unless the animal has been in contact with a person with COVID-19, and the animal has symptoms of the disease, and testing has ruled out more common possible reason. Veterinarians who believe that testing is necessary should contact state officials to make a decision.
Behravesh said that animal experiments were carried out in veterinary laboratories, and the chemicals used were different from human experiments, which were in short supply during the crisis.
Seven Lions and Tigers have tested positive at Bronx Zoo in New York City
There have been several reports of pet dogs or cats outside the United States who were infected after close contact with infectious people, including a dog in Hong Kong whose pathogen levels were detected in February and early March.
The 17-year-old "old" Pomeranian died in mid-March. Its 60-year-old owner had been infected with the virus, but later recovered
The Hong Kong Agriculture Department concluded that pet dogs and cats do not transmit the virus to humans, but if their owners are exposed to the virus, they may be positive.
Chinese researchers discovered in January and February that cats and ferrets are very sensitive to this virus. They found that cats can also infect each other through respiratory droplets, and infected cats have viruses in the mouth, nose, and small intestine.
The kittens exposed to the virus have a lot of damage to their lungs, nose and throat
The researchers wrote, "Surveillance of SARS-CoV-2 in cats should be regarded as an aid to eliminate covid19 in humans."
In ferrets, the virus was found in the upper respiratory tract, but did not cause serious illness.
Antibody tests have shown that dogs are less likely to be infected with the virus. The virus strain was not found in inoculated pigs, chickens and ducks.
A 4 year old Malayan tigress Nadia at the Bronx Zoo was tested positive for coronavirus (covid19)
A tiger in the Bronx Zoo in New York has been infected with coronavirus. This is the first confirmed case of a coronavirus infection in tigers in the United States or anywhere. The 4-year-old Malayan tiger, named Nadia, was tested after the symptoms began on March 27.
Three other tigers and three lions later developed symptoms. The zoo said on Wednesday that subsequent tests confirmed that they were all infected with the virus. In addition, a tiger was also infected with the virus, but did not show any symptoms of the disease. It was an asymptomatic tiger.
Zoo officials said they thought the animals were infected by a virus-infected breeder, but showed no symptoms at the time. The staff dealing with animals has begun to wear anti-infective clothing.
Two cats in New York were diagnosed with new coronavirus and carry respiratory symptoms
Federal officials announced on Wednesday that two cats in New York had been infected with the new coronavirus. Both have mild respiratory symptoms and are expected to recover completely.
The USDA said in a joint statement with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Wednesday:
"This is the first batch of pets that tested positive in the United States."
These agencies emphasize that there is currently no evidence that pets play a role in spreading coronavirus. They said: "There is no need to take some measures that may harm small animals."
A veterinarian first tested the first domestic cat that showed mild respiratory symptoms, but no one at home was infected with the new coronavirus.
The second cat was also tested in another area of New York after showing signs of respiratory disease. The cat's owner had been tested for a new crown before the cat became ill, but the other cat in the family showed no signs of getting sick.
Pets should also follow the social distance regulations
Protection of Pet Animals from Coronavirus: Relevant departments are still learning more about coronaviruses and pets, but the CDC recommends that people limit the interaction between pets and people or animals outside the home.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that cats should be kept indoors as much as possible, and leash dogs to keep a distance of at least six feet from other people and animals.
The agency said dogs should also avoid public places where many people and animals gather, such as dog parks.
If someone has the new coronavirus (whether it is a suspicion or a diagnosis), experts recommend that another member of the family take care of the pet.
If this is not possible, people should wear a cloth mask around the animal and make sure to wash their hands before and after any interaction. Especially when people get sick, they should try to avoid intimate contact with pets.
For the first time, the United States has reported that pet cats are infected with New Coronavirus.
What animal species can New Coronary Pneumonia infect?
What animal species can New Coronary Pneumonia infect?
Researchers received 102 cat blood samples during the COVID-19 outbreak, and tested for new coronavirus-specific antibodies with 39 collected before the outbreak, and found that 15 of the 102 cat sera (14.7%) antibodies after the outbreak Positive; while 39 of the control group were negative.
It shows that during the epidemic, a considerable proportion of cats in Wuhan were infected with new coronavirus, which verified the conclusion that cats in Harbin Veterinary Research Institute are easily infected and infected with new coronavirus.
The two studies have reached a consistent conclusion that cats are susceptible to infection and transmission of new coronavirus. Other common ones, such as dogs, chickens, ducks, pigs and other poultry and livestock are not easily or cannot be infected with the new coronavirus.
