New Delhi: Corona virus has been detected in a pet dog in Britain. This has been confirmed by the Chief Veterinary Officer of the UK. Earlier, corona virus has been confirmed in different countries of the world in other animals as well.

According to the Chief Veterinary Officer, the infection was confirmed after tests at the Animal and Plant Health Agency laboratory in Weybridge on November 3. According to him, the dog is now recovering at home.

Before the dog got corona, the owner also had corona

According to the veterinary officer, if all the evidence is to be believed, before the dog got corona, its owner also had corona. According to his statement, there is no evidence that the animal got corona from its owner or any other pet.

Chief veterinary officer Christine Middlemiss said in the statement that it is very rare for dogs to become infected and they usually show only mild clinical symptoms and recover within a few days.

He said there is no clear evidence that pets directly transmit the virus to humans. We will be monitoring this situation closely and will update pet owners when the situation changes.

Another medical official, Katherine Russell, said in a statement that the case had been reported to the World Animal Health Organization in line with international commitments. Very few cases in pets have been confirmed in other countries in Europe, North America and Asia.

It is important to note that dogs live around humans. If they can also become a source of infection of the covid-19 virus, then contact with dogs will become dangerous. As of now, the vaccine has been made only for humans, there is no vaccine in the world for animals.
