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.
