2 Dogs in Hong Kong Quarantined After Testing Positive for Coronavirus

March 23, 2020



No one's letting these dogs out. Two dogs in Hong Kong have now tested positive for the novel coronavirus, according to UPI. A German shepherd and another dog from the same household were subsequently sent to a quarantine facility. Neither dog has symptoms; as of now, it is not believed pets can transmit the virus to humans. Still, Hong Kong officials urged that pets living with people infected with COVID-19 should be quarantined as well. Experts also suggest pet owners not kiss their animals and practice good hygiene. Any owner who notices something unusual with their pet should seek veterinary care.
