Jim Corbett National Park: India’s 1st quarantine facility for animals

India’s oldest National Park, Jim Corbett National Park becomes India’s 1st quarantine facility for animals with symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19). The Park has built isolation wards for animals. According to the Authority of the park, at least 10 quarantine centres are being prepared within the premises to contain animals. The cameras installed in the vicinity of the national park will record the cold and cough symptoms of animals.

Jim Corbett’s Wildlife Medical Officer, Dr Dushyant has stated that there’s less risk of animals, especially like tigers are becoming infected in forest areas. If the animals who live near the human population come into contact with an infected person or thing, then there is the possibility to get infected too.

To mitigate the spread of the virus from humans to tigers, National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA), has recently issued a direction that all authorities coming in contact with tigers and elephants should be tested for the virus.
