Animals and Covid-19

Crazy COVID

Animals and Covid-19

If you may have not heard, there are 13 gorillas at a zoo in Atlanta that tested positive for COVID-19. Now we know we are pretty close with monkeys and other animals, but for those gorillas to test positive for COVID is just crazy. We never really think about things like this unless we are just joking or something but for once it happened. Here is your sign to make sure you wear your mask correctly.  They believe the virus was transferred by a vaccinated zoo worker who worked closely with the gorillas. Although the vaccination can protect you from the virus make sure you are wearing masks correctly and trying not to quicken the spread of Covid -19.

You probably skipped over some of the news about these but back in February in the San Diego Zoo, all eight of their lowland gorillas contracted the virus. We don’t have much information on that topic. But another crazy thing is that in July two endangered snow leopards tested positive for the virus as well. They responded to treatment in a positive manner. We have found over the course of Covid 19 that large cats are very common to get the virus as well as gorillas.
