Covid: Russia starts vaccinating animals

Description (Dublin Core)

Russia has started vaccinating animals against coronavirus, officials say.

In March, Russia announced it had registered what it said was the world's first animal-specific jab.

Several regions have now started vaccinations at veterinary clinics, Russia's veterinary watchdog, Rosselkhoznadzor, told local media.

Interest has been shown in the Carnivak-Cov vaccine by the EU, Argentina South Korea and Japan, the agency said.

While scientists say there is currently no evidence that animals play a significant role in spreading the disease to humans, infections have been confirmed in various species worldwide.

These include dogs, cats, apes and mink.
