Pets and coronavirus: do not transmit but are at risk of infection
A dog weakly positive for coronavirus in Hong Kong and triggered the alarm among all those who have house dogs or cats. Will fall ill also, and what risk? And, most importantly, how to distinguish between a (now desirable) rhinitis from the first signs of coronavirus? Finally, we were told that they ran any risk? Yes, argue the owners were afraid, on the blog, but had told the children and then you are sick too.

Among those who claim that the news is a hoax, and who meditates on the isolation of your pet fits in our higher Institute of health, which reiterates: there is no evidence that pets spread the virus. How to be sick, it must be pointed out that the dog has no symptoms of illness, but lives in the house with a person that is sick. The most likely hypothesis is that, therefore, the positivity of the dog (traces of the virus were found on the mucosa of the oral and nasal) is due to the illness of the owner. And the fact of living in a contaminated environment. Nothing licking The american Cdc (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) of Atlanta dedicates an entire paragraph to "Covid-19 and animals", giving a series of recommendations. The first is fundamental: limit contact with pets and other animals if you are sick of Covid-19, so as to avoid contact with other people, at least until we have additional information about the virus. So who is sick and has a dog or a cat, they suggest, is preferable to prevent the other members of the family (healthy) and the management of your pet. If you live alone, the precaution is to wear a mask, and always wash your hands before and after touching the animal. Avoiding kissing, licking, sharing food, cuddling is too intimate and close. Always that you are sick. The document first american government document the american is, however, reassuring: in spite of the virus came to humans from an animal, now the transmission of Covid-19 is man-to-man and there is no reason to believe that any animal, including those living in the house, can be a source of infection. And of the rest there are no cases of sick animals, but only one case of the positive animal and no signs of the disease. Inconsistent data "In the genus coronavirus of the animals are not transmitted to the man - think Umberto Agrimi, director of the Department of food safety, nutrition and public veterinary health of the Istituto superiore di Sanità - dogs and cats have their own and the man has his. The jump of species is not unusual, but in this case it is likely that she was the woman to infect the dog, and that the virus is present in the mucosa of the dog such as on dishes or napkins used. The data is still preliminary and inconsistent. For pure scientific curiosity, I'd do the swabs to the pets of the sick, if there was the necessity to concentrate the efforts on the men. That said, if China will impose strict rules for the protection of species of wild and domestic I would be very happy. And not only for ethical reasons, but conservation of the species"
