A 4-year-old Malayan tiger at a Bronx Zoo in New York City has tried positive for COVID-19, in what is accepted to be the main known disease in a creature in the U.S. or then again the primary tiger anyplace in the World.
The declaration was made on by the government authorities and the zoo after a test was led in Iowa by the USDA’s National Veterinary Services Laboratory.
The tiger, Nadia, was uncovered by a zoo laborer who wasn’t yet indicating side effects, the zoo said. The zoo says “proper safeguard measures” have been actualized to think about the felines and limit further presentation.”
As indicated by the Wildlife Conservation Society, six other enormous felines and three African lions are likewise demonstrating Coronavirus manifestations, yet they are completely expected to recoup.
“In spite of the fact that they have encountered some decline in hunger, the felines at the Bronx Zoo are in any case doing great under veterinary consideration and are splendid, alert, and intuitive with their attendants,” the zoo’s discharge said.
