Researchers take coronavirus from human patients and infect cats with Coronavirus. Each cat is housed in a cage with another cat that tested negative for Coronavirus.
Within five days, coronavirus was found in all newly exposed cats.
None of the cats ever showed any coronavirus symptoms.
“There was no sneezing, no coughing, they never had a high body temperature or lost any weight,” Halfmann said. “If a pet owner looked at them ... they wouldn’t have noticed anything.”
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.
Health experts have downplayed that possibility. The American Veterinary Medical Association said in a statement that just because an cat can be deliberately infected in a lab “does not mean that it will easily be infected with that sa…

Airport workers: We need better protection from coronavirus at Newark, JFK and La Guardia
When Yvette Stephens arrives at Newark Liberty International Airport on Tuesday morning to begin her shift as a security guard, she'll be carrying a dozen or so respiratory masks to share with her co-workers who are concerned that a passenger with coronavirus could be arriving at their terminal.
