Lichtenwalner discusses livestock coronaviruses with BDN

Anne Lichtenwalner, University of Maine Cooperative Extension associate professor and director of the veterinary diagnostic laboratory, spoke with the Bangor Daily News about how livestock can contract various coronaviruses. “Some livestock, including pigs, cattle, horses and poultry have their own coronaviruses that cause some disease in their host but aren’t risky to people,” Lichtenwalner said.“These coronaviruses aren’t the same as COVID-19.”
