Stop kissing your pets (Covid-19)

Second dog tests positive for coronavirus as owners warned not to abandon pets

The Hong Kong government has urged people not to abandon their pets and to stop kissing them after a second dog repeatedly tested positive for coronavirus.

The animal-welfare authority reminded pet owners to use good hygiene practices and urged them to avoid kissing their pets but stressed that there is currently no evidence that pets can be a source of the virus or that they can get sick from it.

The AFCD said it “strongly advises” that mammalian pet animals including dogs and cats from households with persons infected with Covid-19 or those who have had close contacted with others infected with the virus, should be quarantined in government facilities. - Marketwatch
