Can elephants get caught with COVID-19?

The coronavirus that is affecting humans is not the same as the one that affects pets, according to researchers. The possibility of infection in pets is very low and there is no evidence that pets can infect humans or other animals they live with. The coronavirus in pets is classified as an Alpha Corona Virus (Alphacoronaviruses) and is transmitted through contact with respiratory secretions, such as saliva, mucus, or blood. The virus can also be spread through contact with contaminated surfaces, such as bedding or food bowls. Symptoms of the virus include fever, coughing, and difficulty breathing. If you suspect your pet has the coronavirus, it is important to take them to the vet immediately. Treatment will vary depending on the severity of the symptoms. In severe cases, hospitalization may be necessary. However, most pets will recover with proper care and treatment. With current data, there is no need to panic if you have a pet. While infections are rare, it is still important to be aware of the symptoms and contact your vet if you suspect your pet may be sick.
