(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 18 – The Animal Health Research Institute
of Piedmont, Liguria and Valle d’Aosta (‘Istituto
Zooprofilattico Sperimentale di Piemonte Liguria e Valle
d’Aosta) said Thursday that it has detected a case of the
British variant of COVID-19 in a cat in Italy.
    The eight-year-old male cat started to show respiratory symptoms
about 10 days after its owners went into isolation at their home
in the province of Novara because they had the virus.
    “This diagnosis and the identification of the Briish variant
shows that the pandemic control and integrated management
systems are effective and ready to respond,” said Angelo
Ferrari, the director of the institute. (ANSA).
