10 people positive for COVID-19
It may sound improbable, but it is true. The contamination took place during a birthday party … for cat!
In the city of Santo Domingo, Chile, 10 people have tested positive for COVID-19. It turned out that all of these people had gone to a cat’s birthday party.
A cat birthday party organized in the midst of a pandemic
The 10 people who were first infected at a cat birthday party then infected 5 other people around them …
We can say that this event could have been postponed after the pandemic.
The cat is not responsible for the contamination
The authorities clarified that it was not the cat that infected people with the virus. It was the organizer of the birthday who was asymptomatic.
True, studies have shown that cats can contract COVID-19. Last April, two cats in New York City tested positive for the virus and became the first cats known in the United States to be infected with the virus.
To date, there is no evidence to indicate that animals played a role in the spread of the virus in the United States.
