This is the first known infection of a cat with COVID-19. two dogs in Hong Kong have previously tested positive — with the first, a 17-year-old Pomeranian, dying after returning home from quarantine.

According to the Brussels Times, the feline tested positive after showing the symptoms of COVID-19 (including breathing difficulties) a week after its owner first fell sick.

So far, there is no evidence that the virus can be transmitted from pets to humans.
