    Otter's at zoo test positive for Covid

    Otters at Georgia Aquarium test positive for Covid-19 (msn.com)

    They're expected to make a full recovery though.

    I'm wondering if there are Otter ventilators.

    They began exhibiting mild respiratory symptoms such as sneezing, runny noses, mild lethargy, and some began coughing,” the Georgia Aquarium said in a statement.The aquarium in Atlanta said the Asian small-clawed otters are currently doing well.
    “Despite following all recommended health and safety protocols, it is suspected the otters may have acquired the infection from an asymptomatic staff member,” the aquarium said in their statement posted to Facebook.
    Is it safe to assume then that Covid can jump from human to animal with ease? I thought thats what keeps some of the more freaky diseases from heading our way.

    it's because the damn otters aren't wearing face masks.
