Cat in Chennai faces deportation to China over coronavirus fears
| Tuesday | 3rd March, 2020
By IANSCHENNAI: A cat suspected to be infected with coronavirus is at the centre of a controversy as PETA India has demanded the release of the feline which faces deportation from the Chennai port to China.
The stowaway cat, which arrived in a container from China more than 20 days ago, has been held at the Chennai port and is now facing deportation to China -- all because of ignorance over the coronavirus.
The Chennai quarantine facility recommended sending the animal back to his or her suspected country of origin.
PETA pointed out that it would be very difficult to establish where the cat embarked the vessel.
It said that it is highly unlikely that the animal would have survived the 10 to 20-day journey from China to India without food and water.
