Poland finds COVID-19 cases among mink farm workers

11 licensed mink farms now reside in OR, with eight in Marion County, though four now do not have any animals, and the others are located in Linn, Clackamas and Clatsop counties.

Neighbouring Denmark earlier on Thursday said a new, mutated strain of the coronavirus stemming from mink farms in the country was "most likely" extinct.

Authorities are analyzing the data to determine if there is a link between the strains found in minks and those in humans, but declined to reveal how many workers had tested positive so far.

All minks on farms in Ireland are to be culled over the next few weeks because of Covid-19 concerns. The risky coronavirus variant has been found on fur farms in the US, Sweden, Italy and Spain.

The government has scrambled to build political consensus, and said Tuesday that a parliamentary majority was now backing its decision to cull the minks. Research from a Danish public health body, the Statens Serum Institut, had suggested that C5 might hinder the effectiveness of a vaccine against COVID-19.

The mink variant was marked the "Sars-CoV-2 Y453F" and believed to spread with the movement of people, animals and goods from Denmark to other countries.

Mogens Jensen admitted last week that the government's order to cull all of Denmark's 15 to 17 million minks had no legal basis.

"The wild mink in Ireland became established after escaping or being released from farms decades ago".

Opposition parties in Denmark are calling for Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen to step down too, saying she was ultimately responsible.

The Irish government on Thursday recommended culling mink in Ireland despite tests for the virus not yielding any positive results to date.

Earlier in November, Danish authorities ordered the cull of all minks in the country after Covid-19 outbreaks were linked to some of the 1,200 Danish mink farms.

The Danish authorities later discovered it had no lawful foundation for its statement, and may only cull mink in which the disease was discovered or at the immediate location.

Mink have shown a particular susceptibility to infection from the coronavirus, a problem inflamed by the fact that mink are bred in large numbers and in close living conditions, according to the World Health Organization.
