On 31 December 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported a cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan City, China. ‘Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2’ (SARS-CoV-2) was confirmed as the causative agent of what we now know as ‘Coronavirus Disease 2019’ (COVID-19). Since then, the virus has spread to more than 100 countries, including South Africa. Please use the South African Department of Health (DOH) website as your ONLY source of truth during these times.
Please read our statement and planning, and logistic updates during lock-down here (updated on a regular basis). To date, experts believe it is very unlikely for any cat or dog to get the COVID-19 virus. The World Health Organization currently advises that there is no evidence to suggest that dogs or cats can be infected with the new coronavirus. The World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) states there is no evidence that dogs and cats play a role in the spread of this disease or that they become sick. Several studies echo the current observations.
The most important thing to remember about your fur kids and COVID-19 is that they cannot transfer it to humans, and they should not be neglected. In the immediate aftermath of the outbreak, misinformation that animals might carry the virus led to the abandonment and killing of many 100’s of dogs and cats in some places. Your fur kids deserve the truth.
If at any point you are concerned about contracting COVID-19, please call the National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) Hotline Number 0800 029 999.
