Dr. Richard Ingle travels to India each year, usually to train teachers and preachers.
The new pet:
We agreed to quarantine him for the zoo.  He has COVID-19 and they don’t want it to spread to the other animals.  Lovely Indian Bengal.

I asked if it would spread to me. They said no chance. He’ll eat you first.
He and a team of Doctors take medical care to villages in India.
