It’s bad enough that humans don’t seem to care about infecting other humans with Covid, but must we also subject other species to our plague? Sadly, Kivu, a silverback gorilla who lives at the Little Rock Zoo in Arkansas has tested positive for Covid.
THV 11 explains:
He was showing signs of lethargy, coughing, and eating only his preferred foods. According to the post, the veterinarian gave him additional fluids and did a swab test.
THV 11 also states that Kivu is vaccinated, and while they don’t know exactly how Kivu contracted Covid, “zoo officials pointed out that coronavirus is a zoonotic disease that can be contracted between humans and animals.”
I am pretty sure how he caught it. Let’s be better humans, please.
