Two white tiger cubs who died in a zoo in Pakistan in January 2021 seem to be related to COVID-19.
Officials at Lahore Zoo said that the two 11-week-old tiger cubs died on January 30.
The autopsy results showed that the tiger cubs had severe lung damage and suffered infection, so pathologists believed that they died of COVID-19.
Although no COVID-19 PCR testing has been conducted, Zoo Deputy Director
Kieran Salim believes that the tiger cubs in the zoo are victims of the COVID-19:
“After their death, the zoo management tested all staff, and six of them tested positive
including one responsible for caring for them. Famous personnel.
Cubs may have contracted the virus from the people who care for and feed them.”
