Dead Pet Dog Tests Positive For Coronavirus In Jersey, UK

Jersey, EU-UK: A pet dog became infected with the virus that causes Covid-19.

According to Jersey’s government, the dog died from unrelated causes in early July, but samples taken later confirmed positive for coronavirus.

The pet is thought to have contracted Covid-19 from someone in the family.

According to officials, there was no evidence of pets spreading the sickness to humans.

Alistair Breed, the chief veterinary officer, said he had submitted the incidence to the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE, formerly the Office International des Epizooties).

OIE has since reported this as an isolated incident. A positive PCR result confirmed the case, but there were “no other pets in the household,” according to the OIE.

The report said that the source of the infection is considered to be direct contact with a person infected with Covid-19.

He also said that there was no change to public health risk as a result of the case.
