SARS-COV-2 in animals: situation update and diagnosis

ONLINE workshop of the Animal Virology working group

New SARS-CoV-2 cases in animals are notified almost every week and new species are affected. In this context, an online workshop took place on February 23rd and  gathered more than 50 participants. It was a unique opportunity to cover different aspects of the infection in animals.

Experts on animal virology presented their research on the zoonotic origin of the virus, on natural and experimental infections, on outbreaks in mink farms, and on diagnostics and molecular epidemiology.

Health representatives of national institutions from Serbia, Montenegro and Egypt shared their experiences on how veterinary laboratories respond in COVID-19 infection.
