(ORDO NEWS) — The zoo in the American city of San Diego has reported the world’s first case of gorilla infection with the coronavirus.
“Members of a group of gorillas at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park tested positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. On Wednesday January 6, two gorillas began to cough … on Monday January 11, the National Veterinary Service laboratories of the US Department of Agriculture confirmed the positive test results, “- said in a message on the site of the safari park.
Presumably, the animals could have contracted the coronavirus from an asymptomatic sick park employee.
