While it is not believed your pet could contract the novel coronavirus, they can still carry the virus on their fur or skin. This has made the daily walk, once a leisurely chore, now a task to worry over.
Vakis Demetriou, a local resident of Cyprus which is currently in a government-mandated lockdown, found a creative way to practice social distancing, but still take his dog for a walk.
In the video, Demetriou’s dog, Oliver, walks along an empty street as it is guided by a drone. The camera pans to show Demetriou operating the drone from the balcony.
In a Facebook post, Demetriou advised other pet owners to consider their pets in the pandemic, as well.
“5th day quarantine. Stay home safe but don’t forget your dog’s happiness.”
