As indicated by the Daily Mail, hound proprietors in China are currently hurrying to purchase face veils for their pets, so as to forestall coronavirus diseases in them, too.

The data right now exact as of press time. Notwithstanding, as the circumstance encompassing COVID-19 keeps on advancing, it's conceivable that a few information have changed since production.
