The Duke study’s principle investigator, Dr. Chris Woods, told CNN that a Dog tests positive for covid 19 in U.S. but people should not be afraid of contracting the virus from their pets. “I’ll not change my behaviour with the household animals at this point. They’re really an important part of our ongoing mental health as we continue to participate in our social distancing to combat the pandemic.”
On April 22, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that two cats living in separate households in New York state had tested positive for the coronavirus.
