        The Belgian zoo said today that two hippos in the park had tested positive for COVID-19. The zoo emphasized that the two giant animals did not show any dangerous symptoms.
        The hippo area of Antwerp zoo in Belgium was previously closed. A pair of 41-year-old hippo mother and 14-year-old hippo daughter living in the area were infected today, and the administrators have quarantined them.
        This is not the first time that animals have been infected with COVID-19 in a zoo, but it is reported that most of the cases are cats and monkeys.
        Antwerp zoo inspected the animals in the park last year and found no cases of COVID-19 infection. However, as the epidemic heats up again this winter, the zoo began to inspect hippos.
