First dog to test positive for COVID-19 in the US has died

Buddy, a 7-year-old German shepherd in New York that had the first confirmed case of COVID-19 in a dog in the U.S. has died on July 11, according to National Geographic.

Robert and Allison Mahoney of Staten Island told National Geographic that their 7-year-old shepherd, Buddy, developed breathing problems in mid-April after Robert had been sick with the coronavirus for several weeks.

It’s unclear whether Buddy died from complications of the coronavirus, which he most likely caught from his owner, Robert Mahoney, who tested positive, or whether he died from lymphoma.
