Police Dog At Hong Kong Airport Test Positive For COVID-19

A police dog working in an elite security unit at Hong Kong’s International Airport has tested positive for COVID-19.

According to the South China Morning report, the handler of the dog tested positive for the disease last week and an oral sample was taken from the German shepherd, The constable’s dog will be cared for at the special administrative region’s agriculture, fisheries and conservation department, which will monitor its recovery until it tests negative.

Samples were taken from 13 other police dogs but all tested negative.

While some animals can test positive for the coronavirus, the World Health Organization said earlier this year that there is no evidence cats and dogs have actually been infected or are able to spread the virus that causes the COVID-19 disease.
