Quoting USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, Articleify in a report said the leopards might be infected by a staff though the zoo authorities have taken precautions.
 
It’s unlikely the leopards or any other animals pose a significant risk in transmitting the virus to humans, as Covid-19 is primarily spread between people.
 
The snow leopards are one of at least six animal species, which were infected with Coronavirus. They found Covid-19 positive after close contact with humans.
