Cats without symptoms can spread virus to other cats; chance of cat-to-human transmission low: Study Updated: 2020-05-18 09:26:00 KST

A new study shows cats can be infected by COVID-19 and transmit it to other cats.
According to research by the University of Wisconsin's School of Veterinary Medicine, cats are capable of spreading the virus to each other, without presenting any symptoms.
Researchers say there's no evidence cats can spread the virus to humans.
But this result suggests people with COVID-19 symptoms should avoid contact with not only humans but also cats.
There have been several reports of COVID-19 infections in animals around the world so far.
