Winston, the first dog known to be infected with COVID-19, has been declared cured

2 years ago

Ben McLean, a student at Darmouth University, said his family was surprised when Winston became the world's first dog found with COVID-19.  Ben's parents were tested and detected with the new coronavirus in March.  His father, a doctor at a hospital in North Carolina, became ill first, and soon his wife became infected.  Ben McLean showed symptoms but was not tested.

 After recovering, the three decided to participate in a study conducted by Duke University.  Patients were asked to donate plasma and be tested for antibodies.  Subsequently, they were asked for permission to have their pets tested.Winston was tested on April 1 and the result was positive.

 All members of the McLean family, including Winston, have been declared healed and now practice social distance as a precaution. "Winston recovered. Today I went for a walk and ran through the park," said Ben McLean.

Function and social status do not protect against COVID-19. Top politicians, heads of state, international celebrities and even royal faces found out about it, who contracted the coronavirus.


Bemorepanda is here to present the list of 100 celebrities and politicians that have been infected with coronavirus.

Many celebrities who tested positive for the new coronavirus or who showed some symptoms specific to COVID-19 infection have announced that they have recovered.


1.Giuliana Rancic

"Hey, everyone. As I go into my 20th year on the E! red carpet I have to say I do not take missing an award show lightly, but unfortunately, this year is just so different," Rancic announced in a video clip she taped from home. "As part of E! and NBCUniversal's very strict testing guidelines, especially before an event like this, I did find out that I tested positive for COVID-19. Now as much as I didn't want to hear that, I'm very thankful I heard it before I traveled and possibly could have exposed other people. So for that, I'm thankful."


2.Vivica A. Fox

"I am sorry I cannot be with my E! family tonight! Unfortunately, I have tested positive for the coronavirus. So, in an abundance of caution, I am isolating myself at home," the statement read.


3.Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka's Family 

"It happened very early [in the pandemic], like late March, early April," he said. "We were doing our best before, and I thought I had the flu, and I didn't want to be paranoid about it. And then I lost my sense of taste and smell, which was a big indicator, so we holed up."

Harris added that he and his family now "have antibodies and are feeling good."


4. Natalie Nunn

"I thought I was coughing and having an asthma attack the last 4 days due to the smoke outside in Northern California from all the fires," she wrote alongside a video taken from her hospital bed, "well unfortunately I have tested positive for Covid 19!"

"Please keep me and my family in your prayers as this is such a scary time for myself and my family!" Nunn continued.


5.Jillian Michaels

“If you are afraid of COVID, you should not go to the gym. And I actually am a person who let my guard down, I haven’t even spoken about this publicly really, and a very close friend of mine gave me COVID several weeks ago," she said during an interview with Fox Business discussing her at-home workout app.

“I’m fortunate to have gone into it being healthy and I was able to get on the other side of it pretty quick, but not everyone is that lucky as we know," she continued. "All I can tell you is if you are afraid of getting COVID, a public gym is probably a place where you will get it."

"I would love to tell you that’s not the case, but the reality is I literally get my guard down for an hour with one of my best friends who does my hair and makeup and got it," Michaels said. "It’s just that simple."


6.Tiffany Haddish

“I was working on a movie and someone in the movie contracted coronavirus,” Haddish told Fauci. “I was not in direct contact with them, but they sent all of us home, we stopped the movie.” That time, she said, her test results came back negative. 

After another person she knew tested positive, Haddish got another test. “I’m not feeling any symptoms or anything, and it comes back like two days later, and they said I did have the coronavirus.” 


7.Robert Pattinson

Warner Bros. did not specify who on set was affected but did tell Vanity Fair in a statement on Sept. 3, 2020, "A member of The Batman production tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols. Filming is temporarily paused.”


8.Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's Family

So the update is this: my wife Lauren as well as my two baby girls and myself, we have all tested positive for COVID-19," Johnson began his video message, shared on Instagram.

"I could tell you that this has been one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family, and for me, too, personally as well," he continued. "And I've gone through some doozies in the past."


9.Usain Bolt

"It is now public knowledge that Mr. Bolt has tested positive. He has been formally notified, I'm told by the authorities," Christopher Tufton told reporters Monday evening, according to CBS News. "It triggers an approach to questioning, interrogation if you will, which we follow through with contact tracing."


10.Frank Fox

"Having just recovered from COVID-19, my next logical step would be to donate plasma, right? @RedCross we gonna chat about the antiquated, uninformed and frankly discrimatory [sic] policies that block me from giving back?" Fox tweeted.


11.Carlin Bates

"I have gotten some messages from some of you checking on us, because I have been a little MIA with our insta fam. Thank you for thinking of us. Evan and I both came down with COVID, so we have been a little out of it," Bates captioned a photo of herself and Stewart snuggled and sitting up in bed on Aug. 17.

"We are on the tail end of recovery and are both doing better," continued Bates, who shares 6-month-old daughter Layla Rae with Stewart.

In a statement to PEOPLE, the couple said that after learning about their positive diagnosis, caring for Layla was their "first concern."


12.Brian Cox

"I'm a diabetic, and I went from my usual bloods that I usually have between months," Cox told host James Corden. "I went there, and they took my bloods, and they took the COVID test. Then my doctor called me and said, 'Oh, congratulations. You've had it.' "


13.J Balvin

"At this moment, I'm just getting better from COVID-19. These have been very difficult days, very complicated. Sometimes we won't think that we'll get it, but I got it and I got it bad," said Balvin in Spanish, speaking in a recorded message from Colombia, Billboard reported.

"My message to those that follow me, young fans and people in general is to take care. This isn't a joke. The virus is real and it's dangerous," he said.


14.Antonio Banderas

Alongside a photo of herself wearing what appears to be a mask attached to a breathing machine, Milano wrote, "This was me on April 2nd after being sick for 2 weeks. I had never been this kind of sick."

"Everything hurt. Loss of smell. It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t keep food in me. I lost 9 pounds in 2 weeks. I was confused. Low grade fever. And the headaches were horrible," she continued. "I basically had every Covid symptom."

Milano wrote that she was re-tested for antibodies after an initial test — done with a finger prick — came back negative. She concluded, "I am POSITIVE for covid antibodies. I had Covid19." 


16.Lena Dunham

“I’ve been reluctant to share this, having written and rewritten it anxiously. I don’t want to unnecessarily add my voice to a noisy landscape on such a challenging topic,” Dunham wrote.

“The fact is, the Coronavirus kills people. We know that. But it will also alter the bodies and lived experiences of so many who are infected, in ways they could never have predicted,” she said, adding that had it not been for her years of health struggles, she didn’t know “how I would have tolerated crossing that threshold from well to unwell.”



17.Bryan Cranston

"Hi. About now you're probably feeling a little tied down, restricting your mobility and like me, you're tired of this!! Well, I just want to encourage you to have a little more patience," Cranston wrote.

"I was pretty strict in adhering to the protocols and still... I contracted the virus. Yep. It sounds daunting now that over 150,000 Americans are dead because of it," Cranston continued.

"I was one of the lucky ones. Mild symptoms. I count my blessings and urge you to keep wearing the damn mask, keep washing your hands, and stay socially distant. We can prevail — but ONLY if we follow the rules. Be well — Stay well," Cranston added, signing the caption BC.

22.Anna Camp

"Hi friends... I felt it was my responsibility to share that I ended up getting Covid-19. I have since tested negative, but I was extremely sick for over three weeks and still have lingering symptoms," she wrote.

"I was incredibly safe. I wore a mask. I used hand sanitizer. One time, when the world was starting to open up, I decided to forgo wearing my mask. One. Time. And I ended up getting it," she explained.

"The panic of contracting a virus that is basically untreatable and is so new that no one knows the long term irreparable damage it does to your immune system is unbelievably stressful. Completely losing my sense of smell and taste without knowing when or even if they will return is extremely disorienting," she wrote, adding that she's "only smelling about 30 percent of how I used to now."

"I’m lucky. Because I didn’t die. But people are," she continued, urging her followers to wear masks. "Please wear ur mask. It can happen any time. And it can happen to anyone. Even that one time you feel safe. We can all make a difference. Wearing a mask is saving lives."


23.Shereé Whitfield

"I just want you guys to know that this is no joke," she said of the virus. "I'm feeling much better today. Thank you to everybody who knew they had not heard from me and reached out ... I just have been out of it.'"

25.Keisha Lance Bottoms

"It's a shock because what I see with him is not out of the ordinary for seasonal allergies," Bottoms, who is reportedly on Joe Biden's shortlist of potential vice presidential running mates, said. "It leaves me for a loss of words because I think it speaks to how contagious this virus is, and we've taken all of the precautions that you can possibly take."

"I have no idea when and where we were exposed," she continued.

Bottoms said the only symptoms she's experienced so far are "a mild cough and headache."



26.Kimberly Guilfoyle

“My first priority is the health and safety of my loved ones and my teammates,” the NASCAR driver said in a statement released by his team, Hendrick Motorsports, on July 3, 2020. “I’ve never missed a race in my Cup career, but I know it’s going to be very hard to watch from the sidelines when I’m supposed to be out there competing. Although this situation is extremely disappointing, I’m going to come back ready to win races and put ourselves in playoff contention.”


28.Prince Royce

"This is something I never thought would happen to me, but it did," he said, speaking both English and Spanish in the clip. "It's something that, I'm in shock. I didn't think it was going to happen to me."

"There is no way of knowing for sure how or where Mr. Cain contracted the coronavirus," they wrote.


31.Novak Djokovic

"Everything we did in the past month, we did with a pure heart and sincere intentions. Our tournament meant to unite and share a message of solidarity and compassion throughout the region," Djokovic said in the statement. He said the event was set up when he thought the virus had "weakened, believing that the conditions for hosting the Tour had been met."

"It was all born with a philanthropic idea, to direct all raised funds towards people in need and it warmed my heart to see how everybody strongly responded to this," he said, then added, "Unfortunately, this virus is still present, and it is a new reality that we are still learning to cope and live with. I am hoping things will ease with time so we can all resume lives the way they were."


32.D.L. Hughley

"Thank you everybody for your prayers and well wishes. When I came I was being treated for extreme exhaustion and dehydration, I was very dehydrated," he shared in a video on Instagram. "Turns out, they ran a battery of tests and I also tested positive for COVID-19 which blew me away. I was asymptomatic," he added.

"I feel like I could have spoken in a more eloquent way about my experience had I known. I continued testing positive for a month, which is longer than they’re saying you’re supposed to. I’m okay now. I’m so grateful for my health and I also feel guilty, in a way, for making it out okay."



"Im Grateful that I can be a part of supporting Research to Find the cure for Covid -19!!

"Today, the world has lost one of the greats of magic, but I have lost my best friend," Horn's partner, Siegfried Fischbacher, said in a statement. "From the moment we met, I knew Roy and I, together, would change the world. There could be no Siegfried without Roy, and no Roy without Siegfried."

Horn and Fischbacher are best known for their Las Vegas show at the Mirage Resort and Casino that ran from 1990 until 2003, when Horn was attacked on stage by one of the white tigers used in the duo's act.


40.Jennifer Wayne

"I’ve been struggling with whether or not to share, because to be honest it’s kind of rocked me and I wasn’t sure that putting it on a public platform was right for me," she began on April 15. "But as I’ve been telling people, I’ve had so many people reach out and say they have/had the virus and what did I do, what were my symptoms etc. So anyway, I am sharing this because I did contract Covid 19 (I’m assuming from the grocery store, it’s the only place I’ve been?!) and I had some great advice from doctors and friends and family (@travelingwithfinn !)... and this helped me kick this things ass."


41.Nick Cordero

According to wife Amanda Kloots, Cordero was "fighting for his life" after contracting the virus in early April.

Stephanopoulos also shared that his wife is feeling a lot better now.


45.Sturgill Simpson

"I spent an hour listening to a (highly condescending) Doctor refuse to test me because I 'did not fit testing criteria' and tell me why it was impossible that I had contracted the virus due to its extreme rarity and that it was not in western Europe yet during that same period (which we now know is incorrect) even though I was told by two nurses that I was the first person their hospital had walk in requesting to be tested," he wrote. "Almost one month later on April 6th my wife and I were both tested after finally finding a free drive-thru testing facility outside a National Guard depot."

She continued, “If you are doubting or have not been affected by corona personally … you need to know that this is serious. There are people who are dying and we have to take it seriously. We have to practice social distancing, and we have to stay in if at all possible.”


49.Jennifer Aydin

“Keeping my kids away has been the hardest,” Aydin said. “Bill’s really stepped up to the plate — he’s staying far, far away from me but he’s helping with the kids, which I’m grateful for.”

“I’ve been doing better now which is why I’m checking in,” she said of her current state. “There are a few rough days where I was just extremely tired and sleeping a lot.

I feel like it’s going in the right direction.”

“I will keep you guys posted on how I’m feeling,” she added. “I hope everyone is well and staying home, ’cause right now that’s what we have to do. We have to stay home to prevent the spread of this awful disease. Remember guys, we’re in this together. Stay safe, be well.”

70.Jackson Browne

"I quarantined immediately upon feeling sick. It was before the mandatory quarantine orders were issued, because you don’t know if you had it or not. I’m in the middle of trying to call everyone I know to discuss with them how they are feeling and whether or not they have symptoms. You have to assume you have it. You need to assume that you in some way could very easily pass it to someone else,” Browne added.

Browne urged his fans and particularly young people all over the world to stay at home, noting that even if "they don't have symptoms" that "they might have it and might be able to pass it on."

"That’s what younger readers need to understand: They need to take part in the global response to stop the spread. That means not going anywhere, not getting into contact with anybody, not seeing anybody,” Browne added.

In order to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, residents from Moscow and several other regions are urged to stay at home. Under quarantine conditions, it is recommended to go outside only in case of emergency.

One good reason to leave your home for a short while is to walk your pets. First of all, dogs.

For those who do not have them, but really want to leave the house and take a walk, dog owners offer to rent a “friend for an hour”. Such ads have already appeared on well-known classified sites.

Price - from 500 rubles ($7) and above and a mandatory deposit, and some also have people "accompanying" the animal.

However, people who really love their dogs, this service causes at least confusion.

For example, corgi breeder Alexandra Baklamina, in a comment to Vesti.Ru, said that a normal owner of a dog would not give it to a stranger, even for a while.

"How can a person be sure of the behavior of his own dog? A dog may not listen to a stranger, pick up something or run away," Alexandra argues.

In addition, as other dog owners say, their pets, in principle, would not go for a walk with a stranger.

The veterinarian, professor of the Department of Biology and Virology, Doctor of Biological Sciences Elena Yarygina, for her part, noted in a comment to that renting an animal is very cruel in relation to it.

Yarygina said that this will lead to stress and may affect his health.

The only situation where you can be trusted to walk with your pet acquaintances, friends or neighbors is when you cannot do this for health reasons.

However, the veterinarian believes that such announcements do not make much sense, since walking animals is not the only condition under which a person can leave his home during quarantine: there is still the opportunity to go to the nearest store or pharmacy.

Earlier it was reported about the Spaniard, who decided to earn extra money during strict quarantine, renting out his dogs for walking.

The Nature Protection Service and the Civil Guard drew attention to him. The man was asked to stop this activity, but he continued it.

These life hacks only create the appearance of protection.

1. Follow the rule of 5 seconds

 Legend has it: if food fell to the floor, but a piece was lifted earlier than 5 seconds later, you can safely eat it.  Because microorganisms are not so nimble and will not have time to crawl onto your sandwich or apple in such a short time.

2. Touch the door handle through the sleeve

 The very idea - to create a barrier between your skin and a potentially contaminated surface - is very correct.  But using your own clothes for this is not the best option.  The dirt, bacteria, and viruses that were on the doorknob end up on your sleeve and then calmly contact your wrists and palms, face, hair, phone, bag, and so on.

3. Press the elevator button with your elbow or knuckle

 Here is almost the same story as in the previous paragraph.  It just seems that we don’t touch anything and that microbes from buttons, handles and doors cannot harm us.  But, for example, the strap of a bag or a pocket of clothes is easy to touch with your elbows, and we also put them on the table, and then touch it with our hands.

 With knuckles, dirt and microorganisms easily fall into the palms and face - when a person clenches his hands into fists, twists his fingers, props his chin, rubs one hand on the other, and so on.

4. Hold your breath when someone sneezes or coughs nearby.

 From infection (if someone sneezing is sick with something) this will not save you.  Firstly, you just won’t have time to hold your breath fast enough - and the smallest drops of saliva and sputum will still fall into your airways (yes, it sounds very disgusting, but alas, it is).

5. Wipe the surface with an antibacterial wipe

 This only works if you use a new cloth for each surface.  And if you wipe the same table, door handles, switches and buttons, then simply transfer microorganisms from one object to another.  After all, the longer you use a napkin, the less antibacterial agents remain on it - and microbes have more chances to survive.

6. Constantly smear hands with an antiseptic

 The sanitizer seems to be a universal and 100 percent remedy.  He rubbed his hands, sprayed everything that was possible - and you sit "in the house."  But antiseptics work only when they are used correctly.

Can your beloved cat or dog give you coronavirus?

Experts agree, almost definitely not.

Hong Kong's Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) said that samples from the dog's nasal and oral cavities had tested "weak positive" for novel coronavirus. It was believed to be the first time that a dog anywhere in the world tested positive for the virus.

The dog - which had no symptoms - was put into quarantine and will be repeatedly tested until the result comes back negative, according to the statement. The department "strongly advises" that pets of people infected with coronavirus are quarantined for 14 days.

Despite this, the AFCD and the World Health Organization both agree there is no evidence that pets such as cats or dogs can be infected with coronavirus.

That's because while dogs can test positive for the virus, it doesn't necessarily mean they have been infected.

Is it worth quarantining pets?

According to Gray, who was working in Hong Kong during SARS, there is still value in quarantining pets from a scientific perspective, because it allows scientists to observe how an animal relates to a disease we still know relatively little about.

"Whilst it seems a bit scary, it's purely a precautionary measure, and it's certainly nothing for pet owners in general to be concerned about," said Gray.

Some pet owners in mainland China have been fitting their dogs with tiny face masks, but Gray said there is no benefit to that -- in fact, it's probably fairly distressing for the pet and could cause them to panic.

Instead, pet owners should stick to the basics: good hygiene.

Both WHO and Gray said owners should wash their hands with soap and water after touching pets.

"I am certainly not in any concern of my dog or cats, I'm far more concerned about myself catching it from a human being that has the disease," said Gray, who is a pet owner herself.

The first dates according to TASS, a study by Hong Kong researchers shows that the ideal temperature for the development and spread of the new coronavirus is 4 degrees Celsius, under these conditions it can withstand the most. However, at 22 degrees, the new coronavirus remains active for one week, while at 37 degrees, the virus becomes inactive within two days. At 70 degrees Celsius, the virus dies in less than five minutes.

The recent dates are established by scientists from France who published a report indicating the temperature at which the coronavirus dies. As it turned out, inactivation is possible only at 92 ° C, subject to exposure for 15 minutes.

Initially, it was assumed that heating to 60 ° C for an hour would be sufficient. However, during the study it turned out: with this effect, the activity of the virus decreases by 6 times, but some strains still survive.

Evaluation of heating and chemical protocols for inactivating coronavirus scientists published on bioRXV portal in the form of a preliminary report (the so-called preprint). The conclusions made are for informational purposes only and require additional checks.

Earlier, other studies showed that different types of coronaviruses can live in the refrigerator for up to 9 days, and in the freezer they can exist for years.
