Even deadly Coronavirus doesn’t stop Saudis from been close to their pet animals, The Camels.
Saudis post photos and video on Twitter and Youtube as kind of unorganized campaign against the government warning of MERS risk from camels as cases rise in the kingdom. Tweets are posted under the hashtag (#كورونا_و_الابل) which means “Corona and Camels” showing their passion to the dessert animal.
Thought that health experts say camels are the most likely animal source of infection for the disease, there is no vaccine or anti-viral treatment against it.
