COVID-19 is common in pets whose owners have had the disease, research suggests. Scientists in the Netherlands tested 156 dogs and 154 cats from 196 households for the coronavirus. Six cats and seven dogs (4.2%) returned positive PCR tests and 31 cats and 23 dogs (17.4%) tested positive for COVID antibodies.
The Dutch Government has decided to ditch all use of the term “Holland” to reference the name of their country. The Netherlands, the country’s official name, will now be used in all promotional materials.
