Pet dog of coronavirus patient in Hong Kong infected with the virus

The pet dog of coronavirus patient has been infected with the virus in Hong Kong. The dog named Canine tested ‘weak positive’ for the new coronavirus.

The owner of the dog is a businesswoman named Yvonne Chow Hau Yee. It was revealed by sources that the dog owner is 60-years old.

The dog was quarantined at an animal center. The AFCD said experts from universities and the World Organisation for Animal Health have unanimously agreed that ‘it is likely to be a case of human-to-animal transmission’.

The city’s Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) said on Wednesday that repeated tests suggest the dog has ‘a low-level of infection’.

The dog was placed in the isolation ward and is the only animal at the ward. It was revealed that the dog is kept under observation for 14 days. Repeated tests will be done until the dog is cleared of the virus. 

AFCD said: “It would be closely monitored and undergo further tests to confirm if it really has the virus or if ‘this is a result of environmental contamination of the dog’s mouth and nose.”
