Tiger tests positive with coronavirus in US
New York: A Tiger has been found infected with the deadly Coronavirus at the Bronx Zoo in New York, United States. Four-year-old Nadia, a female tiger, had a mild cold, followed by a coronavirus test. The zoo issued a statement saying that the tiger’s sister, Ajal, two American lions, and three other lions were being monitored in Africa with similar symptoms.
The zoo authorities have said the virus has transferred into the tiger from a zoo employee. They said “we do not know how the virus spread inside the animals but we have been keeping an eye at the situation.”
The Bronx Zoo has been closed for the public since March 16. In the meantime, the zoo has said that the test was done on the tigers is not similar to the test on humans.
