San Diego, March 7 : Nine great apes at the San Diego Zoo have been vaccinated against the novel coronavirus after some gorillas were infected with the disease.
Four orangutans and five bonobos received the Covid-19 injections in January and February, the zoo confirmed earlier this week.
The vaccinations followed a January outbreak at the zoo’s Safari Park, reports Xinhua news agency.
Eight western lowland gorillas were infected with the virus, probably due to exposure to a zookeeper who had tested positive for Covid-19, officials said.
The gorillas’ symptoms were mild and limited to coughing, congestion and fatigue.
They have fully recovered, according to the zoo.
