Gorillas may also be susceptible to COVID-19

Good luck getting them gorillas a go at social distancing, but I guess isolation is the best they got... 

Stay away from gorillas!

It's a zoonotic disease, transferable between humans and animals. That's why it's such a big deal at my work.

Unfortunately it now appears as though the coronavirus, which has already infected over 700,000 people worldwide, may also be capable of infecting mountain gorillas as well.
 

Yep, got to keep them away from all humans.

 Also any poachers should be shot on sight, whether they are infected or not.

That would suck to lose some or most of the gorillas left.

On a related note, bigfoot is believed to have gone extinct due to the covid-19 virus, however no bodies have been found to test.

This sucks. Gorillas having COVID-19 is unfair because they're innocent. It;s not fair thousands of humans died of it either.
