In Hong Kong, cases of coronavirus detection among pets were again recorded. According to the government’s Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation, the virus has been confirmed in Scottish cats and Yorkshire terriers in different areas of the metropolis.
It is noted that the owners of these animals were isolated, as they had close contacts with patients with coronavirus. The pets were placed in a special quarantine center for animals. The cat and dog tested positive for COVID-19 without showing any symptoms.
Agency officials said they would monitor the animals and retest.
A total of six cases of pet coronavirus have been reported in Hong Kong. The world’s first case of infection in a domestic dog was detected in Hong Kong on 23 January.
