Natural SARS-CoV-2 Infection in Kept Ferrets, Spain

Investigation article published in Emerging Infectious Diseases

July 1st, 2021

We found severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 RNA in 6 (8.4%) of 71 ferrets in central Spain and isolated and sequenced virus from 1 oral and 1 rectal swab specimen. Natural infection occurs in kept ferrets when virus circulation among humans is high. However, small ferret collections probably cannot maintain virus circulation
