Natural SARS-CoV-2 infection in kept ferrets, Spain
New article published in the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) journal.
Abstract: We found SARS-CoV-2 RNA in 6 of 71 ferrets (8.4%) and isolated the virus from one rectal swab. Natural SARS-CoV-2 infection does occur in kept ferrets, at least under circumstances of high viral circulation in the human population. However, small ferret collections are probably unable to maintain prolonged virus circulation.
