Covid-19: first case of transmission from deer to humans discovered


The passage of a virus from one animal to another is not so obvious.

Covid-19: transmission between deer and humans

The words of the health authorities regarding the discovery: “It is reassuring that we have not found evidence of further transmission, during a time when we were doing a lot of sampling and a lot of sequencing. If we continue to do this surveillance, we will have a much better idea of ​​what the actual risk is. Until we know more, people who hunt, trap or work closely or manage wildlife should take precautions to prevent the potential spread of the virus. “

The person who has been infected could be said to have an asymptomatic case of Covid-19. The virus strain analyzed appears to be particularly different than the strains that travel among the human population. Because of this, the situation still needs to be monitored to see if it could become a new problem in a pandemic that seems to be almost over.
