Chinese pet owners are creating makeshift coronavirus masks for their cats and dogs

By

Coronavirus cases are continuing to soar in China, with confirmed cases reaching 42,000 and over 1,000 deaths. In the face of the outbreak, there have been global shortages of protective masks and other medical gear as people seek to protect themselves, and in some cases, their pets.

Photos have been circulating on Chinese social media site Weibo that appear to show cats and dogs in makeshift protective gear. 

According to the Daily Mail, pictures posted to Weibo show animals in China in an array of protective gear, even though the World Health Organization (WHO) doesn't believe that the coronavirus can be passed from humans to animals.
