Zoo Atlanta Will Vaccinate Gorillas After Some Test Positive For COVID-19

Zoo Atlanta says it will be vaccinating its gorilla population, after some tested positive for COVID-19.

The zoo says several western lowland gorillas were tested after showing symptoms such as “coughing, nasal discharge, and minor changes in appetite”.

They believe the gorillas were infected by a zoo worker who tested positive for COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated.

The gorillas are currently receiving monoclonal antibody treatments and will soon get a special vaccine made for animals.
