Tested positive at NYC Bronx Zoo.

A four-year-old female tiger at the Bronx Zoo in New York City tested positive for COVID-19, the coronavirus disease.
A caretaker at the zoo was infected but asymptomatic and infected the tiger.
The zoo says the tigers have decreased appetites but are expected to recover.


Now we have to isolate animals,

Now is the time Crazy Cat Ladies.......

Somebody sneezed on him? I thought all public zoos were closed. Must have been a zoo caretaker.

Why are they wasting testing resources on animals when many people don't have access and the backlog for human test results is over 100K?

So we can waste tests on animals and celebs.... but there isn’t enough tests to show how many people already have/had this..... makes sense

Exactly.... because it doesn’t matter enough; except for power grabs and more federal funds.

The zoo wants a little slice of the next two trillion dollar package.... like the Kennedy Center in New York received.

Pre-positioning it's starting to kick in.

WADDL’s SARS-CoV-2 pet test is similar to the human test: It uses the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to amplify RNA from the virus. Baszler says his team developed it with dozens of archived samples of nasal and throat swabs from cats and dogs collected from the western United States, some of which were seeded with SARS-CoV-2. Though none of these animals had COVID-19, the test was able to pick up the virus in the seeded samples, while not reporting false positives for other coronaviruses. Baszler says the World Health Organization has approved the diagnostic and that WADDL could start to test up to 100 pets per day, if needed.


it does not appear to be the same testing kit that is used on human grubs.

Yes, it was likely an employee. The very short OP says this.


The 4-year-old Malayan tiger named Nadia, and six other tigers and lions that have also fallen ill, are believed to have been infected by a zoo employee who wasn't yet showing symptoms, the zoo said

Yep, second sentence of the OP says this. Not the sneeze part, but the zookeeper.

How the hell did they have a test kit for a damn Tiger?

Everyone is running around saying “No one will give me a test!”

Yet, they have one readily available for a freaking tiger?!?!

I’m calling Bull💩

Just adding this to the thread.
IMO, This coronavirus is based on SARS and was combined with Rift Valley Fever virus that infects humans and livestock interchangeably and on which The Pirbright institute based its "onehealth" vaccine to be able to treat humans and animals with universal vaccines.

In the second link from Sciencemag.com I posted tells of a Pomeranian and a few other animals that were tested in November, these tests were conducted in Asia somewhere.

Not the same tests used for humans.

After looking it up it appears similar to Australia’s and South Pacific islands Ross River fever.... transmissible through bodily fluids and blood and possible skin contact.

Mosquitos play a big part in most viruses.

Imagine if Covid was transmissible through Mosquitos..... WOW

Because if this thing can suddenly jump to a tiger from us like this that is not good. Last we need is our food supply at risk too.

Took the words right out of my mouth. How the actual F does a zoo tiger get tested before an American citizen when there is a shortage on tests?

So stupid.
