We are going through some challenges as Coronavirus spreads all over the world.It makes sense for us to be braced and have knowledge on best approaches to help our body fight the virus, in case it will be needed. We put together several informations and research content about supplements that can help fighting virus infections for you.

As we know, the coronavirus has infected several wild animals and it is also possible that it infects our beloved pets. According to some studies cats can be infected with the COVID-19 virus and can spread it among their species. Dogs are not really affected by the virus. The team, at Harbin Veterinary Research Institute, also concludes that chickens, pigs and ducks are not likely to catch the virus. This doesn´t mean that cat owners should be alarmed now. The results are based on lab experiments in which a small number of animals were deliberately given high doses of the virus. This do not represent real-life interactions between people and their pets. Cats developed not enough coronavirus to pass it on to people.

Ferrets are being highly susceptible to infection with the COVID-19 coronavirus, which makes them a suitable model for testing potential vaccines and drugs. Ferrets are already used as models in influenza studies. The researchers inoculated five young dogs with COVID-19 and found that two excreted viral RNA in their faeces, but none contained infectious virus. There were similar investigations in pigs, chickens and ducks: none of them identified no viral RNA.

These findings suggest that none of these species plays a part in the epidemiology of COVID-19.
