Our take on infection of hamsters with SARS-CoV-2
I almost forgot to tweet about this. Very nice hamster model by Yoshi Kawaoka's group in Madison! Thanks for including me, Yoshi!
Syrian hamsters highly susceptible to SARS-CoV-2, without adaptation, and develop severe pneumonia similar to COVID-19 patients. Interesting animal model from Kawaoka’s lab: useful for understanding pathogenesis and testing vaccines and antivirals
