The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has taken the world by storm with over 2 million confirmed cases worldwide.
Countries such as the US, Italy and Spain are facing overwhelming odds as they combat the virus. The US has over 644 000 confirmed cases, while Spain has over 180 000 cases. Italy has over 165 000 cases. The death tolls of these three countries are devastating.
To date, there are 2506 confirmed COVID-19 cases in South Africa.
As scores of countries around the world are combating the virus, it seems wildlife is taking advantage of mankind focusing on VOVID-19.
