WHO probing Covid-19 MUTATION in minks after massive Denmark outbreak & decision to cull 15 million animals

The outbreak was originally detected early in October, with DATCP insisting it has affected minks only, with no cases of animal-to-human transmission observed. Fur farms in Utah and Michigan have also experienced Covid-19 outbreaks over the past few weeks, with more than 10,000 mink succumbing to the disease.  

If not contained, however, the outbreaks might spell disaster for the US fur industry and unpredictable consequences for the human population, as recent developments in Denmark show. 

The world’s largest mink fur-producing country announced on Wednesday that it plans to cull its entire stock of more than 15 million animals to minimize the risk of them re-transmitting the new coronavirus to humans after some 12 people contracted the infection from the animals.

Animal advocacy group Humane Society International said the Denmark cull was a welfare “tragedy” but also an opportunity to “pivot away from this cruel and dying industry.”
