Hong Kong dog infection spurs worries among pet owners

Experts say there is no evidence that household animals can transmit coronavirus

HONG KONG -- When Colleen Wu takes her two-year-old dog for a walk these days, she covers its mouth with a muzzle.

Wu, who lives in the city of Yangzhou in China's eastern Jiangsu Province, believes that can help prevent her dog, a Labrador retriever and German shepherd mix named Annie, from biting anything that might contain the new coronavirus. She also sanitizes Annie and the products her cherished dog uses when they return home.
