ISLAMABAD-Three cats contaminated with the virus that causes COVID-19 unfold the virus to a few different cats in a lab examine printed in The New England Journal of Medication by a analysis staff working in Tokyo, Japan, and Wisconsin, USA. The analysis staff emphasizes that there isn’t any proof of the COVID-19 virus transmitting from cats to people. Researchers state that it’s more likely that people are giving the virus to their pets, moderately than pets inflicting people to develop into sick. The analysis staff contaminated three cats with massive doses of the virus that causes COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, immediately into each eyes, each nostrils, the mouth and the trachea (windpipe). The contaminated cats have been housed in pairs with uninfected cats, sharing the identical area, meals, water, and air. Inside 5 days, the uninfected cats examined optimistic for SARS-CoV-2 in nasal swabs. After their first optimistic check, all cats continued to check optimistic for about 5 days, that means the cats have been possible infectious — in a position to unfold the virus to others — for about 5 days.
Blood checks confirmed that the cats produced antibodies, molecules that the immune system makes use of to get rid of present infections, and forestall future re-infection, for 24 days after first changing into contaminated, the longest time included within the examine.
