Researchers took coronavirus from human patients and infect cats with Coronavirus. Each cat is then housed in a cage with another cat that tested negative for Coronavirus.
Within five days, coronavirus was found in all three of the 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 in…

Autopsy report confirms George Floyd had coronavirus
WASHINGTON (SBG) — An autopsy report of George Floyd released Wednesday reveals he had coronavirus.
The full report released by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office confirms Floyd died May 25 after his heart stopped as a police officer restrained him and suppressed his neck, but also says he tested positive for 2019-nCoV RNA, otherwise known as the novel coronavirus.
The document states he tested positive on April 3.
"Since PCR positivity for 2019-nCoV RNA can persist for weeks after the onset and resolution of clinical disease, the autopsy result most likely reflects asymptomatic but persistent PCR positivity from previous infection," the report reads.
