Now it seems that what I have long feared is coming true!
But the Chinese I have long believed almost nothing. You have to wait and see what happens in Europe.
Already the second dog in Hong Kong tested positive for coronavirus, although it showed no symptoms. His master was in quarantine. So what is it?
The Hong Kong government has urged people not to abandon their pets. They should also stop kissing the animals if possible. A second dog tested positive for coronavirus. But the animal would have shown no symptoms of the disease.
A German Shepherd dog living in the Pok Fu Lam area of Hong Kong Island was sent into quarantine on Thursday along with another mixed-breed dog from the same apartment. Its owner was considered infected at the time and was in quarantine. This was confirmed by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation (AFCD) in a statement.
Although the shepherd dog tested positive for the virus, there was no positive test for coronavirus in the mixed-breed dog. "Neither dog has shown any signs of CoViD-19 disease," the AFCD said, adding that they will continue to monitor both dogs and perform repeated tests on the animals.
"Our pets can be a comfort and not a cause for concern in this evolving Covid-19 environment," said Dr. Jim Blacka, veterinarian in IDEXX's Companion Animal Commercial Business, "IDEXX's data to date shows no cases of the novel coronavirus in thousands of tested dog and cat samples, which is good news for pets and the people who care for them," he added.
Nevertheless, the AFCD said it "strongly advises" that mammals, including dogs and cats, from households with people infected with Covid-19 or who have been in close contact with other people infected with the virus should be quarantined in government facilities.

That would be the peak. My dog has been fighting for more than 1 year against a strong Boreliosis infection, which he picked up from a single tick, much too early, during the cold season. He definitely doesn't need a corona infection from me.
But he should actually be hardened, because he was bitten by a scorpion when he was less than 1 year old in Greece and fought against the poison for several days (Fortunately I had stayed in Switzerland. I would have surely a seizure otherwise. My husband had told me this much later.
Be that as it may. In a couple of weeks, my dog's blood will be retested for Lyme disease, then we'll see.
