Covid-19, a Delta variant, has been found infected in lions at the Arignar Anna Zoological Park in Chennai

Covid-19 was found in nine lions at Chennai’s Arignar Anna Zoological Park on June 3. ICAR’s National Institute of High-Security Animal Diseases (NIHSAD) sequenced the genomes of four of these lions.

Covid-19 variants Delta and B.1.617.2 were found in the genome sequencing results done at NIHSAD, Bhopal.

IHSAD, Bhopal, performed genome sequencing on four samples of Pangolin lineage B.1.617.2. According to WHO nomenclature, all four sequences are of the Delta variant.

The World Health Organization designated the B.1.617.2 strain as a variant of concern (VOC) on May 11 due to increased transmissibility and decreased neutralization.

LIONS TEST POSITIVE

From May 24 through May 29, Arigunar Anna Zoo Park sent samples of eleven lions for CoV-2 testing.

In Bhopal, samples were sent to the ICAR-NIHSAD that studies exotic and emerging wild pathogens. SARS-CoV-2 samples from captive animals can be tested at three of four approved institutes.

ICAR-NIHSAD reported on June 3 that nine lions tested positive for Covid-19. The park provides active treatment for them since then.

Neela, a nine-year-old lioness, died from Covid-19 on June 4. Pathmanathan, a 12-year-old lion, died on June 16 after contracting the virus.

In the Hyderabad zoo, all eight Asiatic lions with Covid-19 have recovered
