Natural #SARSCoV2 infection of ferrets in Spain

Animals, Coronavirus, Europe, Health, Mutation, Reinfection, Science, Spain

“We found SARS-CoV-2 RNA in 6 of 71 ferrets (8.4%) and isolated the virus from one rectal swab. Natural SARS-CoV-2 infection does occur in kept ferrets, at least under circumstances of high viral circulation in the human population. However, small ferret collections are probably unable to maintain prolonged virus circulation.”
