SARS-CoV-2 Projects and Studies

Last Modified: Marzo 08, 2024

APHIS and other One Health partners are conducting projects and studies to protect our Nation's animals and people from SARS-CoV-2 and other zoonotic diseases (those that can spread between animals and people).

Our projects and studies align with APHIS' Strategic Framework (362.4 KB) for SARS-CoV-2 surveillance in animals. This includes projects and studies to understand how SARS-CoV-2 virus behaves in different animals, how it moves between animals and people, and what we can do to interrupt the chain of disease transmission. This will help APHIS achieve our goal of building a national capacity to prevent or limit the next zoonotic disease outbreak. Browse our current projects and studies below.
