A troop of gorillas at the San Diego Zoo’s Safari Park is recovering from an outbreak of COVID-19 that sickened several of the group’s eight members, the zoo said in a news release on Monday.

The gorillas began to fall ill on Jan. 6, when two of them started coughing, the statement by San Diego Zoo Global said.

The strain that infected them was “a new, highly contagious strain of the coronavirus, recently identified in California,” the zoo said.
