A female tiger was injured at the Bronx Zoo in New York

A female tiger from the Malaysian family, living in a zoo in New York City, was infected with the Coruna virus.

The Bronx Zoo said the National Veterinary Services Office laboratory in Iowa had confirmed the injury of a four-year-old tiger female named "Nadia".

In addition to Nadia, her sister Azul and Nirman from the Amur family as well as three African lions suffered from a dry cough, but they are all expected to recover, according to the zoo.

It is believed that the infection has spread to these animals through a guard working in the garden.

"Nadia" has been examined "as a precautionary measure," the zoo said in a statement on Sunday. "We will ensure that any information we acquire about COVID-19 contributes to understanding the incessant world of this emerging virus."

The statement said that large cats suffer from a lack of appetite, but they are well and under veterinary care, and they are vigilant and interacting with their guards.

The gardeners pointed out that it is not known how the virus will develop in the body of animals such as tigers and lions, as different species or species can interact differently with the new disease. But they said that all animals will be closely monitored.

No symptoms of the disease appeared on any other large cats in the garden, including leopards and tigers.

It was reported by the zoo that the cats were infected by someone who did not show symptoms of the disease or before it appeared.

The four zoological parks run by the Wildlife Conservation Society in New York City, including the Bronx Park, have been closed to the public since March 16.

New measures will be taken to protect animals and their caregivers at all facilities.

"There is no evidence that anyone has been infected with COVID-19 in the United States by animals, including dogs and domestic cats," the zoo statement said.
