Pet dog of coronavirus patient found to have 'low level' of virus in Hong Kong

Hindustan Times

The pet dog of a coronavirus patient in Hong Kong has been found to have a 'low level' of the virus, the Hong Kong government said early Friday.

The dog tested 'weak positive' for the coronavirus, the city's agricultural and fisheries department said in a statement, without giving further details. Officials will carry out further tests to confirm whether the dog has really been infected with the disease, or if it was a result of environmental contamination of its mouth and nose.

Much is still not known about the virus that is spreading around the world after emerging in central China late last year.
