Istraživanje: Zaraza koronavirusom učestala među kućnim ljubimcima

Zaraza koronavirusom česta je kod kućnih ljubimaca, poput pasa i mačaka čiji su vlasnici oboljeli od COVID-19, pokazalo je istraživanje Univerziteta u Utrechtu.

Brisevi od 310 kućnih ljubimaca uzeti su iz 196 domaćinstava u Holandiji u kojima je bilo slučajeva zaraze koronavirusom. PCR testiranje pokazalo je da je šest mačaka i sedam pasa bilo pozitivno na COVID-19.

“Ako imate COVID-19, trebali biste izbjeći kontakt s vašom mačkom ili psom, kao što biste uradili s ljudima. Glavna briga nije zdravlje životinja, već potencijalni rizik da bi kućni ljubimci mogli djelovati kao rezervoar virusa i ponovno ga unijeti u ljudsku populaciju”, izjavila je Els Broens, profesorica na Univerzitetu u Utrechtu, prenosi BBC.

Autori studije rekli su da do danas nisu zabilježeni dokazi o transmisiji bolesti s kućnog ljubimca na vlasnika, ali i da je to teško otkriti dok se koronavirus još uvijek lako širi među ljudima.

Većina zaraženih kućnih ljubimaca su asimptomatski ili imaju blage simptome.
