Tigers and Lions, but Probably Not Dogs
Many questions remain about which animals are susceptible to Covid-19
A four-year-old Malayan tiger at New York City’s Bronx Zoo has tested positive for the coronavirus, AP reported yesterday. The tiger, named Nadia, had exhibited a dry cough since March 27, and a group of six other tigers and lions with suspected infections were wheezing and had lowered appetites. Zoo officials believe that Nadia and the other cats were infected by one staff member who was infected, but asymptomatic.
