Do animals get coronavirus? We answer more kids' questions!

Coronacast 12 de abril de 2020 24

share close

Scientists have given coronavirus to ferrets, dogs and cats to try and find out how the virus works.

It turns out some animals can contract and potentially spread coronavirus – and that includes household pets.

In today’s Coronacast, Dr Norman Swan and health reporter Tegan Taylor answer more questions from kids about the pandemic.

On today’s show:

* James asks why is the coronavirus also called COVID-19?

* Finn asks does it make animals sick?

* Estelle asks when can I see my grandparents?

* Alice asks why do adults get coronavirus worse than children?

* Oliver asks how close are we to discovering a vaccine for COVID-19?

And don’t forget about the Together In Art Kids project! See our website at for more information.
