Lahore Zoo staff, animals tested COVID-19

Lahore, June 1 (IANS) Director of the Lahore Zoo Chaudhry Shafqat Ali said that animals and birds are free of COVID-19 in one of the oldest facilities in the world, adding that staff corona virus testing and animal screening were carried out.

“All animals have been tested negative for the corona virus,” The Express Tribune quoted Ali as saying on Sunday.

He said the test was carried out after a tiger was reportedly infected with a virus from a zoo keeper without symptoms in New York.

Ali underlined that the Lahore Zoo remained safe from such challenges through the adoption of preventive measures.

He said that the staff coronavirus test was carried out with the help of the Punjab Ministry of Health.

“The animals were also screened by the University of Health Sciences and Veterinary Medicine (UVAS) as a precautionary measure, even though zookeepers are free of coronaviruses, and permission certificates are issued.”
