Joe Biden held a press conference today to announce jobs numbers for June. He also decided to fearmonger about the new covid “variant” to scare people into getting the vaccination. There is no cause for concern but Biden wants people to freak out and get the shot.
You can give covid to your pets…So hurry and get the vaccine.

Can Your Pet Get COVID-19?
You may have heard that coronaviruses can infect animals and wondered whether your pets could get COVID-19 — or pass the virus to you.
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses. Some cause illness in people, and some, like canine and feline coronaviruses, infect only animals.
In rare cases, a coronavirus jumps from animals to humans. A small number of pets have been infected with the virus that causes COVID-19. This is thought to have also happened with two other types of deadly coronaviruses, Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). All three originated in bats.
Most pets with COVID-19 only had mild symptoms. Some didn’t show any symptoms at all. Serious illness in pets seems to be extremely rare.
Can dogs get the coronavirus?
There are a few reports of dogs being infected. Experts believe that the pets caught the new coronavirus from close contact with people who had it.
Can cats get the coronavirus?
A few cats have reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 after they came into contact with people who were infected. They include pet cats and zoo animals.
Early studies have found that cats are the animals most likely to catch the new coronavirus. They can also show symptoms of COVID-19 and might be able to pass it to other cats.
New studies show that two domestic cats in the U.K. were infected with COVID-19. These cats got the virus from humans and had mild to severe respiratory symptoms.
Are any other types of pets at risk?
Ferrets can catch the coronavirus and might give it to other ferrets. But poultry and pigs don’t appear to be at risk.
Can I Get Coronavirus From My Pets?
There’s no evidence that pets can spread COVID-19 to people or that they might be a source of infection.
