SARS-CoV-2-Animals: More case reports and studies are showing that various animals and even wild life are contracting the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus and this is not good news as these creatures could end up being reservoirs of the virus and even worse while in these animals, the virus could experience recombinant events involving other animal viruses and potentially create a new dangerous strain that could be passed back to humans via zoonotic transmissions. Even if this does not occur, mutations could still occur while in these animals and create a more concerning strain.

Based on the current kinetics of the COVID-19 pandemic and looking at how fast the virus is spreading to all parts of the globe with very little monitoring of what is happening to the various animal species, the chances of events that was mentioned above occurring in 2022 are extremely high.
 
SARS-CoV-2 Infection Confirmed In A Canada Lynx At A Pennsylvania Zoo
 
The USDA’s or the United States Department of Agriculture’s National Veterinary Services Laboratories (NVSL) today announced confirmation of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) in a Canada lynx at a zoo in Pennsylvania.  This is the first Canada lynx confirmed with the SARS-CoV-2 virus in America.
 
Specimen samples were taken from the lynx after it showed signs of infection including coughing and lethargy.
 
Although the USDA has previously announced each new species confirmed with the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the United States, moving forward, these cases will be posted on USDA’s website and a separate announcement will not be issued.  Confirmed cases in animals are posted at the USDA SARS-CoV-2 in Animals Dashboard. https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/dashboards/tableau/sars-dashboard
 
The USDA will continue to closely monitor cases of the infection in animals, will complete surveillance for the virus in animals under the American Rescue Plan framework, and will report cases to the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE).

To date, SARS-CoV-2 infections have been reported in several animal species worldwide, mostly in animals that had close contact with a person with COVID-19.  At th
