A spokesperson for Hong Kong's Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) said Friday that a pet dog had been tested "weak positive" for the novel coronavirus.

The dog's nasal and oral cavity samples were tested and it did not have any symptoms so far, the spokesperson said.

The dog belongs to a patient infected with COVID-19 and is now under quarantine at an animal keeping facility.

The AFCD said it will conduct further tests to confirm if the dog has been infected with the virus or if this is a result of environmental contamination.
