Negative RT-PCR report mandatory for zoo keepers, field officers in MP

After eight Asiatic lions at Nehru Zoological Park in Hyderabad tested positive for Covid-19, MP forest department has instructed all the zoological parks and tiger reserves in the state to stay on alert, said an official.

The zoo administration is serving boiled meat with anti-viral medicines to animals to protect them against Covid-19 infection, said forest department official.

"In MP, which is home to the highest number of tigers in the country i.e., 526, RT-PCR test has been made compulsory for staffers of zoo, field officers and forest guards of national parks and Tiger reserves involved in animal rescue operations," said Alok Kumar, principal chief conservator of forest (wildlife).

In Indore, Gwalior and Bhopal zoological parks, all the staff members will give samples for RT-PCR test. Kamla Nehru zoological park, Indore, in-charge Uttam Yadav said, "Apart from RT-PCR test of staff members, we are also sanitising the park daily. We have started giving boiled meat laced with anti-viral medicines to animals to save them from viral infection."
