Patrice SARDA -EVERYTHING CONCERNING BIOSECURITY

  • On March 11, 2020, O.M.S declared it a pandemic, meaning it would spread worldwide.

     

    Some medical experts believe that COVID-19 / SARS-CoV-2 will develop smarter and more quickly, becoming a more powerful and dangerously transformed star.

    In other countries, pets such as cats or dogs have been reported to be infected by humans.

     

    It is believed that the pandemic trade in the wet market in Wuhan, in central China, was the cause of the epidemic.

    The virus has probably passed from one bat to another, possibly close to a human, possibly on the market

     

    Animals that live near each other are at risk of mutation and virus transmission, which is especially harmful if they are affected by threatened or endangered animal populations.

     

    It is not yet known how the new coronavirus originates in humans, but experts say a virus-carrying bat can be transmitted to humans by an intermediate animal and may be closely related to it, perhaps.

     

    Studies show that COVID-19 can also go the other way, from infected humans to animals.

    In Hong Kong, local authorities have confirmed that both dogs and cat owners are infected with Kovid-19.

     

    Also, in New York, USA, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced last week that two cats tested positive for Kovid-19.

    One of the two cats has an infected owner.

    The New York Zoo also infected a tiger.

     

    But government veterinarians in Hong Kong did not monitor compulsory pets, saying that pets were not easily infected and were mainly cats and dogs. There is no evidence to suggest that animals can transmit the virus to humans or that they cannot transmit the virus to other pets.

     

    But there have also been reports of cats and dogs being infected by humans in other countries.

     

    Experts believe the virus-carrying bat has spread it and evolved in humans,

    It is closely related to the intermediary animal, perhaps through the trade of wild species.

     

    Studies show that ferrets and cats are more susceptible to infection, while dogs, pigs, chickens and ducks, COVID-19 reproduce poorly.

    So far, no species is close to spreading in humans, but in terms of the basics, how the virus interacts between different species.

     

    Increasing biosecurity is important.

     

    According to some experts, it is necessary to limit some interactions between humans and animals by minimizing the risk of animals, by not allowing people to go to farms, sanctuaries or zoos where wild animals are kept.

     

    To understand these risks, we must continue to monitor the situation.

     

    For information, COVID-19 / SARS-CoV-2 was first identified on December 31, 2019.

     

    On January 30, 2020, the WHO (World Health Organization) declared the epidemic to be an international public health emergency to prevent the spread of the virus and help other countries with weaker health systems.
