Your Pets Cannot Catch The Corona Virus

Last week there was an some anxiety caused by a dog testing positive for corona virus in China. However Experts and  the WHO have agreed that there is no evidence to suggest that cats or dogs can be infected by the virus. Even if they do the strain are very different they say.

They go on to say that the pets of infected people are as infectious as things around the person like a door handle, a TV remote and such. The virus can be transfers when the infected person coughs or sneezes  to the animal or things around them if necessary precautions or not taken.

However it is better to quarantine pets that test positive as a precautionary measure. It is important to wash your hands after touching pets and generally following all hygiene advisories. Build your immunity,  increase your intake of vitamin C. Cleaning your pets after a walk could also help.

There is no need to panic, fear could result in people selling off or abandoning of pets. It could cause other people to stigmatize pet owners.

Remember that pets could help reduce stress in this time of fear mongering.
