First Pug infected by Coronavirus
A pug in the US has been diagnosed with a confirmed case of coronavirus

As soon as the unlucky pup stopped eating his food, his owners knew something was wrong.


A pug in North Carolina has tested positive for the coronavirus, marking the first known infection in a dog in the United States, according to US media.

The pet, named Winston, was part of a Duke University study on April 1 in which the whole household was tested for the virus, local TV channel WRAL reported.

“The virus that causes COVID-19 was detected” in the dog, Dr Chris Woods, the lead investigator of the university’s Molecular and Epidemiological Study of Suspected Infection, told the outlet, adding that he believed it was the country’s first such case.

In the household, the mother, father and son also tested positive while the daughter, another dog and a cat tested negative. The family’s pet lizard was not tested.

The pug was exhibiting mild symptoms for a few days, according to the mother, Heather McLean.

“There was one day when he didn’t want to eat his breakfast, and if you know pugs, you know they love to eat, so that seemed very unusual,” she told WRAL.

The pug joins the ranks of a Pomeranian in Hong Kong that was the world’s first dog to test positive for the virus in February.

That is truly miraculous, seeing that the virus that causes COVID-19 had not yet been isolated.

Until now, that is.

Did they say anything about why the now miraculously isolated virus did not jump from one dog to the other dog?

it's been found in tigers, cats and dogs, bats etc.

so many zoonotic transfers.

What is likely is that the "test" tests for something that is quite prevalent in many living organisms

Coronavirus Antibodies Detected in Wild White-Tailed Deer in Several U.S. States

Forty percent of white-tailed deer sampled from four states between January and March 2021 had antibodies from the virus that causes Covid-19

White-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) are abundant in the United States; they can be seen bounding around rural and urban areas in every state except for Alaska. A new survey carried out by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) detected antibodies for SARS-CoV-2 in wild deer populations in four states. Meaning that the deer contracted coronavirus in the wild and fought off the infection, reports Dina Fine Maron for National Geographic.

I think this was more about trying to cripple the Fur industry, than anything else. But the precedent of killing animals that test positive for COVID, has been set.



Quote:Denmark to cull up to 17 million mink amid coronavirus fears

Denmark will cull all its mink - as many as 17 million - after a mutated form of coronavirus that can spread to humans was found on mink farms.

Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said the mutated virus posed a "risk to the effectiveness" of a future Covid-19 vaccine.

Denmark is the world's biggest producer of mink fur and its main export markets are China and Hong Kong.

The culling began late last month, after many mink cases were detected.

Coronavirus cases have also been detected in farmed mink in the Netherlands and Spain since the pandemic began in Europe.

But cases are spreading fast in Denmark - 207 mink farms in Jutland are affected - and at least five cases of the new virus strain were found. Twelve people had become infected, the authorities said.

Coronavirus: A hunt for the 'missing link' species
Prime Minister Frederiksen described the situation as "very, very serious". Danish police and army personnel will help to carry out the mass cull.

Ms Frederiksen cited a government report which said the mutated virus had been found to weaken the body's ability to form antibodies, potentially making the current vaccines under development for Covid-19 ineffective.

"We have a great responsibility towards our own population, but with the mutation that has now been found, we have an even greater responsibility for the rest of the world as well," she told a news conference.

Since the start of the pandemic Denmark has reported 52,265 human cases of Covid-19 and 733 deaths, data from Johns Hopkins University shows.

RE: First Pug infected by Coronavirus
when a few animals get something and they cull every animal.. it gives the impression that the disease kills all.
it's a type of mental programming

it's similar to the lie that native americans were all killed by disease... they were straight up GENOCIDED with guns
