Covid-19 expands to animals: tiger and 3 lions affected in the New York/Bronx zoo

#1 Post by RealBlackStuff » Mon Apr 06, 2020 2:45 am

This pandemic is now reaching out for animals!
Tiger and 3 lions at New York's Bronx Zoo tests positive for COVID-19
Makes you wonder if cats and dogs are next...

And in case anyone is interested: Boris Johnson has been admitted to hospital with Covid-19.
Guess many are all waiting now for that "close friend" of his to get it too...

PS: flying pigs are immune! :mrgreen:

I've read both cats and dogs can get infected.

A little late to this topic but I remembered seeing a video off The Guardian's YouTube channel starring Boris shaking hands with COVID patients saying it is bravery. Just because it is bravery doesn't mean it is the right thing to do. :roll:

Don't forget that it came from a wild bat, that was sold in the wuhan fish market (even though there no wild bats in that area), and that the US Army put the bat there.

Some my instincts as a Colonel do not allow me to believe any of the above.
