Pets and Covid 19 Virus

The coronavirus  COVID  19  is on  everybody's minds  right now, around the world.
It's hard to imagine that one mammal had this virus and it was transferred  to  ONE HUMAN  and now  the world  is being turned upside  down.


According to sources I had  read, I thought  it has been said that pets  can not get the virus.
It's  VERY UNLIKELY a dog can pick the virus.

2 dogs have tested positive in Hong Kong.

The Hong Kong animal-welfare authority stressed that there is currently no evidence that pets can be a source of the virus or that they can get sick from it. “Under no circumstances should [owners] abandon their pets,” it said.
The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) said that infectious disease experts and multiple international and domestic human and animal health organizations, all agree there is no evidence at this point to indicate that pets become ill with Covid-19 or that they spread it to other animals, including people.
