There's No Evidence That Suggests Your Pets Could Get Coronavirus






Good news, folks. There is no evidence to suggest that your pets could be infected with the coronavirus (COVID-19), according to the World Health Organisation.

It is believed that the infection - which has k*illed around 5,000 people worldwide - won't bring down your cats and dogs.



The World Health Organisation (WHO) wrote: "At present, there is no evidence that companion animals/pets such as dogs or cats can be infected with the new coronavirus. However, it is always a good idea to wash your hands with soap and water after contact with pets.

"This protects you against various common bacteria such as E. coli and Salmonella that can pass between pets and humans."

This news came after it was reported that a dog in Hong Kong had tested positive for coronavirus, which was officially declared a pandemic by the WHO earlier this week.


The Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) said the animal was tested 'weak positive' for the COVID-19 virus, adding that the dog is now under quarantine.
