    Woman passes on coronavirus to her pet CAT: Belgium's public health body says vets found infection a week after owner came down with it
    • A Belgian virologist said a coronavirus infection 'has been determined in a cat'
    • He said it was an 'isolated case' and that the virus had spread from person to cat
    • It is the third known infected pet after two dogs caught the virus in Hong Kong
    ......Officials did not identify the woman but said that she came from the Belgian city of Liege in the French-speaking part of the country.

    Van Gucht added: 'The cat had diarrhoea, kept vomiting and had breathing difficulties. The researchers found the virus in the cat's faeces.

    'We want to stress that this is an isolated case. Additionally, in this case, we are talking about a human-to-animal transmission, not the other way around.

    'There are no indications that this is common. The risk of animal-to-human transmission, is very small.'

    Updated advice from Belgian health authorities said the infected cat had 'transient respiratory and digestive disorders'.

      je recherche le lien, sur le forum, concernant les animaux, surtout maintenant que l'on sait que des membres de l'entreprise Smithfield sont positifs. Cela me semble pouvoir concernenr autre chose que des chats ... La sous question est: qui dispose de moyen de diagnostic, pays par pays, comme, déjà les tests pour humain sont très loin d'être suffisant ?
