What happened: It has been reported that scientists in Thailanad have claimed that a pet cat had passed SARS-CoV-2 to a veterinary surgeon, whereas it is pertinent to mention that there have been no previous reports of cat-to-human transmission of Covid-19. The team of scientists in Thailand stated, “the first solid evidence of a pet cat infecting a person with SARS-CoV-2 adding felines to the lsit of animals that can transmit the virus to people.” 

Details: However, the Thai researchers were left surprised and said, “we are surprised that it has taken this long to establish that transmission can occur, given the scale of pandemic, the virus’s ability to jump between animal species.” 

More: Previously, there was no reported case of cat transmitting Covid-19, but it was earlier reported that, “studies early in the pandemic found that cats shed infectious virus particles and can infect other cats.”
