Coronavirus Infected Cats Infects Humans ?
Scientists who led the research say it shows the need for more research into whether coronavirus can spread from people to cats to people again.
Cats can spread coronavirus to other cats without any cats ever having symptoms, a lab experiment suggests.
Health experts have downplayed that possibility. The American Veterinary Medical Association said in a new statement that just because an animal can be deliberately infected in a lab “does not mean that it will easily be infected with that same virus under natural conditions.”
Anyone concerned about that risk should use “common sense hygiene,” said virus expert Peter Halfmann. Don’t kiss your pets and keep surfaces clean to cut the chances of picking up any virus an animal might shed, he said.
He and colleagues at the University of Wisconsin School of Vet…
