Default COVID-19 not yet identified in North American bats, Alberta expert says

COVID-19 not yet identified in North American bats, Alberta expert says


June 25, 2020

Biologists are still concerned that bat populations in North America could contract COVID-19, an Alberta bat expert says.

So far, the specific strain responsible for COVID-19 has not yet been identified in North American bats, Lisa Wilkinson, species-at-risk biologist and provincial bat specialist with Alberta Environment and Parks, told CBC's Edmonton AM on Thursday.

But as the mammals can contract coronaviruses, they may be susceptible to the one that causes COVID-19.
