As for animals, it is thought this latest strain of Coronavirus likely came from a bat. However, the CDC has stated that at this time, “there is no evidence that animals play a significant role in spreading the virus that causes COVID-19.” There have been a small number of pets that have contracted COVID-19 in the United States and around the world, although these animals were diagnosed with the virus after their owner or another person they interacted with contracted it first. Current research indicates that ferrets, cats, hamsters, and dogs may all become infected with the virus, though dogs are unlikely to spread it amongst their species. Meanwhile, other studies suggest that mice, pigs, chickens, and ducks, are not at risk of becoming infected with or spreading the virus.
Of course, if you get close enough to a mouse where you have to worry about the spread of an infection, you already have a big problem to worry about.
