The World Health Organization (WHO) established that it is possible to infect with coronavirus from pets as Ukraine’s Healthcare Ministry reported.

Mostly, the spreaders of the virus among the animals are bats. However, the virus overcame the species barrier from a human to an animal intermediate.

“Domestic, wild or domesticated wild animals, which are not identified yet, may become such animals intermediate,” the message said.

Thus, cats, dogs and other pets may become the spreaders of the virus.
