Two hippos test positive for Covid-19 in Belgium

Two hippos at a zoo in Antwerp, Belgium, have tested positive for Covid-19, in what is believed to be the first such infection reported in the species.

The hippos, named Imani and Hermien, have shown no symptoms “other than runny noses,” according to a news release from the zoo.

How the animals were exposed to the virus is unknown — their caretakers have not shown any Covid-19 symptoms and all tested negative for the virus, the release said.

Imani, who is 14 years old, and Hermien, who is 41, are being kept in isolation for now and cannot be seen by visitors, the zoo said.
