COVID-19 Risks to Animals

Researchers say they have identified more than two dozen animals frequently in contact with humans that may be vulnerable to COVID-19 infection. The University College London study found that a protein in sheep, great apes and bonobos may be susceptible to becoming bound with the spike protein from COVID, allowing them to become infected as strongly as humans. Lead researcher Christine Orengo says those animals at risk include some endangered species, and that they all would have the potential to infect humans they later come in close contact with.
