Apparently, your pet could catch COVID-19 as easily as he catches a ball? Why didn’t CDC and veterinarians warn animal owners of the possibility?



May 2023 received this information from the Centers for Disease Control And Prevention: “The risk of animals spreading SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, to people is low. (but) “The virus can spread from people to animals during close contact.


Listed as examples were “Companion animals, including pet cats, dogs, hamsters, and ferrets.” And “More studies and surveillance are needed to understand how SARS-CoV-2 is spread between people and animals.” ~ CDC, Coping {Ref #1}


The CDC currently lists heart disease (current cases 695,547), Cancer (at 605,213) and COVID-19 (416,893) as the “leading causes of death.” That notwithstanding, a highly respected medical doctor noted “Death from COVID-19 is more than double that of other common causes of death, from Alzheimer’s to Zika virus or even from accidents.



Harvard University states {Ref #2}About half of American adults surveyed say they have been infected with COVID-19 at some point, with 35% affirming they had “tested positive for COVID-19 before.


The NetPlacesNetwork is fortunate to have world-renowned medical professionals on our Science And Advisory Board who are deeply concerned about the continued presence of COVID and other lab-created viruses, which we now know is where COVID originated.


If a loved one succumbed to COVID 19, none of this information lessens your loss. Our intent is to help you better protect yourself and your pets. Your ability to do that begins here… In 2019 the CDC said “SARS-CoV-2 is spread between people and animals.” Their advice “People with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 should avoid contact with animals, including pets.” is equally applicable in 2023.


Americans have been told a lot about the SARS-COVID virus but we seem to ignore the significance of its origin. The CDC says it is “…respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China.” Google returns (over 4,560,000,000 results) in response to “where did covid originate?” vary from (COVID) “originated at Wuhan city of China” ~ ClinMedjournals to “The global health community and politicians continue to debate the origins of the disease in Wuhan, China.” ~ Texas A&M University
