Nadia is a four-year-old tiger female living in the Bronx Zoo, New York. They decided to do a coronavirus test after contacting a caretaker infected with COVID-19. The zoo worker reportedly had no symptoms of the disease.

The diagnosis was confirmed by the US Department of Agriculture National Veterinary Laboratory based in Ames, Iowa.

The Wildlife Conservation Society said that Nadia, three other tigers, and three African lions developed a dry cough and decreased appetite, but they are expected to recover. None of the other large cats, including tigers in another part of the zoo, showed symptoms of coronavirus.
