Pets can be infected with the mysterious new virus which has killed nearly 200 people, as per a Chinese expert.

Li Lanjuan, an epidemiologist, also a member of the team China has collected and studied on real data to cope with coronavirus 2019. She said that the disease can be transmitted from mammal to mammal. However, she didn’t say whether there had been any cases where pets catch the virus.

There have been np evidence of pets getting infected with 2019-nCoV.

WHO (the World Health Organization) has earlier made a statement that there has not any evidence that pets, such as cats and dogs, may be infected with the 2019-nCoV. The agency said it is inevident if this virus can affect animals’ health and there have not been any reports of particular events involving any species.

On another hand, as to a translation of China Daily, Lanjuan shared with China Central Television that if pets go outside and are in contact with an infested person, they would have the possibility to catch the virus. By then, owners need to isolate the pets. Apart from people, everyone should be careful with mammals, especially pets.


The healthcare provider you go to may require laboratory tests on serum (part of your blood) or respiratory specimens to descry human coronaviruses.

Supposed that you are having symptoms, inform your healthcare provider of any contact with animals or recent travel. Be cautious as, until the moment, the new coronavirus has been spreading from China to 15 other nations.
