Abstract:

Though Covid19 is closely related to SARS and MERS, the present SARS-COV-2 is different to these two other corona viruses with respect to mild infection in 80% of cases and 20% severe. Based on the available literature, the Covid-19 pandemic is linked to a fish market, though the exact source is yet to confirm. So far it is understood that this novel corona virus causes respiratory symptoms and spreads as droplet infection in humans, people who are infected but asymptomatic also play a role in spread. At the same time, there is no established evidence that the companion animals can spread covid19 to humans. It should be understood that any kind of pet and companion animal is not a vector of the present pandemic, and hence, there is no reason to abandon the man’s beloved companion.
