On September 12, 2020, Dr. Susan and I will doing a ‘live’ podcast at the Hill’s Global Virtual Vet Students Day. We will then later publish this podcast for you all to listen too. We are the last speakers at 6pm GMT+2 time. We are so excited and we will be talking 🐈 cats (what else), COVID, and cutting (surgery).
The COVID-19 pandemic, caused by SARS-CoV-2, has swept around the globe, devastating people’s lives and the economies of many countries. Veterinarians have a key role to play as we have many excellent researchers into coronaviruses in animal species, including our guest for episodes 57 & 58, Dr. Severine Tasker. Susan and Jolle are certainly practicing physical distancing as they recorded this episode almost 2,000 (over 1200 miles) km apart! We discuss the emerging information about cats and SARS-CoV-2 and what everyone needs to know. The good news is that cats are not particularly susceptible to this virus, they don’t seem to suffer severe disease, and they are no risk to people.
