Interesting article on Long Covid:

New clues to the biology of long COVID are starting to emerge
https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2021/11/12/1053509795/long-covid-causes-treatment-clues

"It's still early days. But we believe that long COVID is not caused by one thing. That there are multiple diseases that are happening," says Akiko Iwasaki, a professor of immunobiology at Yale University who is also studying long COVID.

..............
"We are finding elevated cytokines in long-COVID patients and we're trying to decode what those cytokines mean. We're also seeing some distinct auto-antibody reactivity and are trying to find out what those antibodies are doing and whether they are causing harm," Iwasaki says.

More on the issue of Deer becoming infected and the inference that wildlife in general may become victims as well with future mutations:


Penn State researchers believe white-tailed deer are contracting coronavirus from humans

Between December 2020 and January 2021, Penn State researchers found 80% of white-tailed deer sampled in Iowa tested positive for the virus.


But researchers said white-tailed deer have the potential to be a reservoir for the virus to continually circulate. This may potentially create new strains of the virus that could be a threat to other wildlife and humans, according to researchers.

I'm having trouble finding a link in English but the Granby Zoo in Quebec is going to vaccinate some of their animals against Covid-19 (mainly gorillas and tigers).

Three snow leopards at Nebraska zoo die from COVID-19 complications
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news...id-lincoln-childrens-zoo-nebraska/8607774002/


The snow leopards are among several to contract the coronavirus in zoos around the country. The snow leopards NeeCee, Kimti and Meru all tested positive at the Louisville Zoo and recovered from their illnesses late last year. Ramil and Naphisa, two snow leopards at the San Diego Zoo, tested positive this summer after zookeepers noticed coughs.

Other zoo animals including lions, tigersand gorillas have gotten COVID at zoos, and some cases have been attributed to transmission from handlers.
