The authorities are also investigating the cause of 4 goat deaths before that, whether they were infected with the virus or not. The goatherd and one more villager have been confirmed positive.

The story took place in the Godekere village of Tumakuru district in Karnataka. The village is home to over 300 households with more than 1,000 people. At least two people here have been confirmed positive with the coronavirus recently, including one goatherd.

The goats were being swabbed to test for coronavirus.

As there was evidence worldwide that Covid-19 could spread to animals, 47 goats raised by this man have been quarantined and collected test samples.

More seriously, 4 goats of the same owner died earlier, evoking doubts whether they were already infected or not, and if they contracted with coronavirus, who would be the source: goats or goat owner.

Some villagers worried the officials would cull the livestock.

Surprisingly, when the officials came to isolate the goats outside the village, they didn’t gain support from villagers. Instead, they were suspected to kill the livestock, which angered residents here.

The swap samples were taken and sent to Institute of Animal Health and Veterinary Biologicals in Bengaluru. While waiting for the result, all those goats will be quarantined to avoid possible spread to people and animals nearby.
