Four more tigers and three lions have tested positive for COVID-19 at the Bronx Zoo in New York City, informed the zoo authorities on Wednesday.

The testing was reported almost after three weeks one tiger-Nadia- has tested positive for COVID-19 in the same zoo.

Nadia was the first feline to have tested positive for the virus and this followed the zoo authorities across the world to take extra preventive measures and protect the big cats from getting infected.

“Nadia was infected from one of the caretakers/zoo-keepers,” National Geographic reported quoting Paul Calle, the chief veterinarian of Bronx Zoo.

The zoo has been closed since then.
