"Snow Leopards Are the Latest Cats to Be Infected With the Coronavirus"

"Lions and tigers had already contracted the virus, but have recovered."

"Snow leopards at the Louisville Zoo are the latest animals to be infected with the coronavirus.

One female cat, NeeCee, has tested positive and two males, Kimti and Meru, are presumed positive, based on tests at a regional veterinary diagnostic center that must be confirmed at a national lab.

The cats are all showing minor symptoms of coughing and wheezing, much like the tigers and lions at the Bronx Zoo that tested positive back in April. The New York cats recovered without difficulty and the Kentucky zoo expects the snow leopards will do the same."
