...


According to official statements, coronavirus has been detected in 8 gorillas living in the zoo in the United States. It is not yet known whether gorillas can infect humans.

It's been exactly a year since the coronavirus pandemic began to affect the world, but new discoveries about the outbreak continue to be made. Finally, at the San Diego Zoo, one of the most popular and famous zoos in the United States, it was announced that gorillas who continue their lives were caught in COVID-19.

Lisa Peterson, director of the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park, explained that 8 gorillas living in a special section reserved for them in the park tested positive for coronavirus, and 8 gorillas tested positive for coronavirus. The development was approved by California Governor Gavin Newsom himself.

It is not yet known whether gorillas can infect humans with coronavirus

According to the statements, gorillas cough heavily, just like people caught on COVID-19. Initial estimates of the incident are that the virus was transmitted to gorillas from an employee at the zoo. However, at the moment, no definitive explanation has been made on this issue, and investigations are continuing.

About 8 months before today, it was announced that tigers, lions and cats, which are felines, can be caught with coronavirus. The explanation at the time was that humans could infect cats, but cats could not infect humans. Whether this also applies to gorillas will only be understood after further investigations.
