Deer mice and COVID-19

P. maniculatus and susceptibility to SARS-CoV-2

I wanted to bring to your attention 2 preprints that appeared recently and show that P. maniculatus is susceptible to SARS-CoV-2 infection. Besides their value as potential model for COVID-19 these studies have obvious implications on the potential role of deer mice as a natural reservoir for this virus.
