The coronavirus was found in a rare snow leopard at the San Diego Zoo that had not been vaccinated.

The zoo, on the other hand, continues to give injections to protect other animals.

On Thursday, caretakers watched Ramil, a 9-year-old male snow leopard, with a cough and runny nose.

Two different tests of his chair later confirmed the presence of the coronavirus, according to a statement released by the zoo on Friday.

The zoo stated that it had no idea how the snow leopard was attacked.

The zoo said Ramil showed no other symptoms, but because he shares an enclosure with a female snow leopard and two Amur leopards, the crew believe they have been released.

The animals were then quarantined and their exhibition closed.

The Snow Leopard Trust estimates that there are only 4,000 to 6,000 snow leopards left in the world.

The zoo began vaccinating its animals in January with donated recombinant spike-protein pure vaccines, which are not intended for human consumption.

After the zoo’s gorillas tested positive for the virus, the zoo immunized numerous greats.

The gorillas made a full recovery.
