Two hippos have tested positive for Covid-19 at Antwerp zoo, according to a press release.
“Both animals, Imani and Hermien, apart from a runny nose, show no other symptoms and are doing well,” the ZOO says. “The animals are in isolation and the keepers are taking even stricter safety measures.”
The cause of the infection is not known. ZOO Antwerp says none of the keepers have recently contracted the disease, nor have any staff members shown any symptoms.
