The Denver Zoo’s COVID-19 outbreak continues to spread.

Less than two weeks after two tigers tested positive for the coronavirus, 11 African lions have now done the same, zoo officials said Monday in a news release.

The lions were tested after zoo keepers observed, coughing, sneezing, lethargy and nasal discharge, officials said.

“Animal care and veterinarians describe their symptoms as relatively mild at this point, and are closely monitoring and treating the lions individually as needed,” zoo officials said.
