Orangutan Helps Keep Zoo Sanitised Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

An orangutan grabbed a sponge and helped keep Perth Zoo sanitised as the COVID-19 pandemic spread in Australia.

Perth Zoo announced they would be forced to close on March 24 after the Australian government requested all non-essential services be shut in order to contain the spread of coronavirus.

“Puteri is helping keep everything sanitised!” the Zoo wrote on Facebook accompanying the video.

There were 2,423 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Australia on March 25, according to health authorities. Credit: Perth Zoo via Storyful
