Endangered Sumatran Tigers Recovering from COVID at Jakarta Zoo |  Coronavirus Pandemic News

“Their appetites have returned and they are back to being active.” “The two tigers had received medication, including antibiotics, and multivitamins, since they began showing symptoms. After 12 days of medications, their conditions began to improve and they are expected to recover,” Marsitawati said. She added in a statement that the zoo is still trying to trace how the tigers were exposed, since the facility was closed under Jakarta’s pandemic-related restrictions when the cats started showing symptoms.

Marsitawati said samples taken from the animals on July 14 tested positive for the virus. Tino began to show symptoms including sneezing, breathing difficulties and a decrease in appetite on July 9. Two days later, Hari started exhibiting the same.

The two critically endangered big cats are believed to be Indonesia’s first known cases of animals contracting COVID-19. Nine-year-old Tino and 12-year-old Hari were receiving medication and remained under close observation by veterinarians at Ragunan Zoo, the head of Jakarta Parks and Urban Forest Agency, Suzi Marsitawati, said on Sunday.

Indonesia has been Southeast Asia’s hardest-hit country during the COVID-19 pandemic, with more than 3.4 million infections and some 94,000 deaths.

The Sumatran tiger is Indonesia’s only remaining tiger subspecies, and only 600 remain. The other two subspecies – the Javan tiger and the Bali tiger – are extinct. “We have traced all caretakers and zoo staff on duty when the tigers began to get sick, but so far none of them were exposed to COVID-19,” Marsitawati said.
