In India, the beginning of the pandemic saw a widespread phenomenon of abandoning pet animals. Most families made this decision due to misinformation, fear-mongering and irresponsible articles and hoardings, which claimed animals could spread the coronavirus. Although a few animals have been testing positive for Covid-19, the World Health Organization (WHO) has stated unequivocally that there is still no evidence they can transmit the disease to humans.

I miss my mommy! But she must be happy travelling.
Oh, he's good. Yes, that made me sad. They are not true animal lovers!
How is Caesar, your dog? I'm happy you didn't abandon him like many did when the pandemic began.
Many did this due to misinformation, fear-mongering and irresponsible articles claiming animals could spread the coronavirus.
