If this is the official story why isn't any government of the world enforcing that while we try to keep the people safe with social distancing/quarantine that we conduct a global scientific investigation to identify exactly which animals can pass the virus to humans. All I hear about is how fast we can acquire a vaccine from Bill Gates.
While 2 dogs (Hong Kong) and 1 cat (Belgium) have been reported to have been infected with SARS-CoV-2, infectious disease experts and multiple international and domestic human and animal health organizations agree there is no evidence at this point to indicate that pets spread COVID-19 to other animals, including people.
Out of an abundance of caution, it is recommended that those ill with COVID-19 limit contact with animals until more information is known about the virus. Have another member of your household take care of walking, feeding, and playing with your pet. If you have a service animal or you must care for your pet, then wear a facemask; don’t share food, kiss, or hug them; and wash your hands before and after any contact with them.
If this corona strain came from animals then it has the possibility at any time to mutate and infect everyone again, which would mean we would be back to square one.
