According to the Chinese newspaper, "China China Moring Post", the dog died, on Monday, after he was returned to his companions' house following the end of the quarantine imposed on him.
The authorities released the dog after it had a negative corona examination, which gave the suggestion that it had recovered from the disease.
The dog was 17 years old, and it is from the Pomeranian family with thick hair.
The owner of the 60-year-old dog was infected with the Corona virus, but recovered from it later, and the newspaper quoted a Hong Kong official as saying that the owner of the dead dog had refused to dissect it.

Before the dog was infected, the official said, there were no indications that the pets could be infected with the Coruna virus.
