Tiger at the Bronx zoo in the United States was ill COVID-19, according to the Society for the protection of wildlife (WCS).
Symptoms in four year old tigress from Malaysia named Nadia appeared on March 27. Test for coronavirus showed a positive result. This is the first case of animal infection in the United States and the world’s first case of detection of a new type of tiger.
Zoologists also reacted to the news with skepticism. According to experts, the coronavirus is, in principle, common among animals type of virus. But they have it and your man is not transmitted, also the animals can not get COVID-19 from man. This is not a fatal infection that exists in nature for a long time.
