Greece Find COVID-19 Among Mink At Two Farms

Vaccine works against mutated mink coronavirus in early animal trials - Danish scientist EU agency: Coronavirus spread in minks could speed mutations

Minks are seen here last week at an estate in Denmark, where the government has ordered the culling of all minks due to an outbreak of the novel coronavirus in the animals.

The ECDC said that when COVID-19 starts spreading on a mink farm, the large numbers of animal infections means "the virus can accumulate mutations more quickly in minks and spread back into the human population". The virus has now been found in minks in Greece as well.

In Denmark, 214 people have been identified as having contracted SARS-CoV-2 variants associated with farmed minks - 12 of which featured a unique variant.

"Tragically, the loss of the Danish mink creation implies that the proprietorship base vanishes and in this way, the organization's administration has chosen to slowly cut back the organization and make a controlled closure over a time of 2-3 years", said Lauge.

The agency recommended countries adopt protective measures at mink farms, including testing people working at the farms and sequencing the virus if they test positive for COVID-19.

The health agency has also called for animals to be tested on a routine basis, as well as for the introduction of additional cautionary measures to limit the potential spread of the virus from minks to humans. The trade in mink fur is an important source of income for the area.

The world's largest fur auction house, Kopenhagen Fur, has announced that it will shut down following the government, perhaps illicitly, ordering Denmark's entire mink population culled over coronavirus mutations fears.

'This virus is in every country and it's mutating differently in every country, ' the former World Health Organisation official added.

Kopenhagen Fur CEO Jesper Lauge said Thursday that the discovery of coronavirus infections put the Danish mink industry "in an extreme and unusually hard situation".
