A pug who resides in the U.S. became the first dog patient to be infected with coronavirus. Jerusalem Post wrote that, referring to the American Humane Society.
It's the first dog in the U.S. who had this dangerous disease confirmed by scientists.
According to the animals rights activists, the dog must have caught the disease from someone of the family members he lived with - a man, a woman and their son. However, the illness seems to have bypassed the daughter, the cat and another dog in the same family.
"Early last month, Hong Kong health authorities said a coronavirus patient's pet dog that tested positive for the virus was "likely" the first case of human-to-animal transmission. Since then there have been several cases reported in cats. Last week two cats living separately in New York
state became the first pets in the United States to test positive for coronavirus, leading health officials to caution that there was no evidence pets can spread the virus to humans", wrote Jerusalem Post
