Coronavirus Patient’s Pet Dog Tests Positive for ‘Low Level’ of Virus

Hong Kong – The pet dog of a coronavirus patient in Hong Kong was found to have a “low level” of the deadly virus, the autonomous region’s government said Friday.

The pooch’s oral and nasal cavities were tested Wednesday, with the results showing a “weak positive” of the new coronavirus, known as COVID-19. 

Health officials are not sure if the dog, which is not exhibiting any symptoms, is actually infected or just carrying the virus in its mouth and nose from “environmental contamination.”
