Prague Zoo has announced it is closing its popular “Indonesian Jungle” exhibit from Saturday as there is a risk of the orangutan and the macaque monkeys catching Covid-19 from visitors.

In the exhibit, which this correspondent knows well, visitors first walk through a mock cave where bats fly overhead, before emerging into an Indonesian rainforest with various animals including an orangutan and several macaques.
