Brazil's scientific community has begun mobilizing after SARS-CoV-2 infections were detected in different wildlife species, with experts especially concerned about the potential impact of new coronavirus strains.

The presence of the virus in an anteater, a black-tufted marmoset and two manatees suggests that "a larger number of species are affected," veterinarian Alexander Biondo told Efe.
