Tiger in New York zoo tests positive for coronavirus

Even tigers are not spared of the COVID-19 in New York! A 4-year-old Malayan tiger at the Bronx Zoo has tested positive for the virus after developing a dry cough, the Wildlife Conservation Society said in a statement. The statement also says that three African lions are also showing symptoms of the disease. The tiger is believed to have contracted the virus by an asymptomatic zoo employee.

I heard someone inquire about what itd mean for humankind if this strain of corona virus could spread to wild animals and back to us again. It looks like we might be inching closer to that reality.

Just wait until birds pick up the virus and start passing it back to humans

Should keep infected farmers away from farmed livestock. Imagine if it got into sheep, cow's etc and then could be passed back to humans via processed meat while still fresh.

From bats, to people, to tigers. I'm not liking how contagious this is.
