A domestic cat in Hong Kong has tested positive for the coronavirus – the second in the world to do so – after its owner became infected, according to the city’s animal welfare authority.

Oral cavity, nasal and rectal samples taken from the pet returned positive readings on Monday, said a spokesman for the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD).
“The cat has not shown any signs of disease,” he added, referring to Covid-19, the illness caused by the coronavirus.
The short-haired pet lived with an infected young woman in Shek Pai Wan Estate, Aberdeen, and was sent to quarantine on Monday.
