Now this infection has also spread to animals. For the first time in the country, 8 lions together in a zoo have been hit by the corona. These Corana positive lions belong to the Nehru Zoological Park (NZP) in Hyderabad.
The eight Asiatic lions at the Nehru Zoological Park (NZP) in Hyderabad have received corona test positive. On 29th April, the Center for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB) told NZP officials that the RT-PCR test of these lions has come positive. But the zoological administration has not yet confirmed it officially.
According to sources, the lions were tested after seeing signs of corona. Doctors of the zoological park showed signs of corona in these eight lions, including loss of appetite, watery nose and coughing among the lions, after which 12 lions were tested and 8 found infected.
