Best Sign the Apocalypse Is Nigh

According to a report from NPR, scientists say white-tailed deer are increasingly carrying SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. The deer are picking up the virus and carrying it with them across the country, spreading it to other deer possibly “indefinitely,” they say. But that’s not all — scientists also speculate that the deer could pass the virus back to humans and create newer, more resistant strains. That’s bad news for Ohio, where white-tailed deer are plentiful and serve as the state mammal.
