In around 80 countries 31,800 cases of Monkeypox virus have been witnessed so far

Now, a unique case of monkeypox virus came out as a dog becomes the new victim of this virus

A 4-year-old Italian greyhound dog got infected with monkeypox virus through his owner this summer

The owner of this dog lives in Paris and he first got infected with the virus & showed symptoms like ulcers, rashes

On June 10 Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris confirmed that the owner infected with monkeypox

The dog and his owner shares the same bed & chances were high that the dog licked his owner

Sorbonne University researchers in Paris tested this dog & give confirmation of the monkeypox strain as its owner

However, owners followed the monkeypox safety protocols & keep their pet away from other people & pets

This shows that human-to-dog monkeypox virus transmission is possible & people now need to take extra care
