The actress posted a picture with her furry friend and wrote that pets cannot contract corona. Sharing pictures with her dog, Athiya wrote, ““those who teach us most about humanity aren’t always human.” – Donald Hicks *Pets do not have corona, nor can they contract it.* Please read that sentence again. You wouldn’t abandon your family members. Do not abandon your pets. .ps: swipe right to see just how much he tolerates me 🤪”
Earlier, even actress Alia Bhatt took to her social media to clear the misconception. She posted a statement in which she emphasised that “there is currently NO EVIDENCE” to suggest that pet animals can be a source of infection to humans.” She urged the pet owners to maintain good hygiene including washing one’s hands before and after handling animals as well as their food.
