A research team from the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University of Colorado in the United States recently made this claim.
The report is published in the research journal PNAS of the National Academy of Sciences.
Studies have shown that coronary mutations occur after infecting cats, dogs, rats, and rats.
Coronary infections are currently spreading from one species of animal to another.
The news of corona being identified among wild animals, zoo animals and pets is always in the media. However, this is rare in the case of other viruses in animal species. The exception is seen in Covid-19 or Sars Cov-2 virus.
Eric Gani, a wildlife pathologist at the University of Pennsylvania, says humans come into contact with a wide variety of animals. As a result, SARS COV-2 has the opportunity to infect different species of animals.
Experiments with the mutation of the virus have shown that the virus is further mutated after entering the body of different animals.
Researcher Bosco Loth compared it to the process of creating a new type of corona in the human body. “People who are exposed to the SARS cov-2 virus are more likely to be infected,” he said.
Samples of SARS COV-2 were collected from human bodies in early 2020. The specimens were brought into contact with four pet species.
