Have primates outside of confined areas been battling COVID?

So, delta is confirmed to be able to transfer from Humans to Apes, but for whatever reason the article feels certain it can't go back the other way..?

You know, cause this corona variant doesn't have ANY history of interspecies transmission...  Oh, wait, that is exactly it's earliest most infamous quality that nearly everyone knows about!

I really love you, Dr. Zaius!

And I just read that the mu variant is mostly undeterred by the vaccines and may spread to cows.

Oh well there goes my trip to visit the Apes.


I was too late for the Dr. Zaius comment. Great episode.

KY Jerry: Have primates outside of confined areas been battling COVID?


There's at least one thread a day about some AM radio talk show host or Gadsden-flag-waving patriot dying from COVID, so I'd say yes.

Fun fact: AM stands for "ape monologues".

Two questions:

Who is shoving that test swab up a gorilla's nose?

When is their funeral?
