  1. This is very interesting. In my eyes, the European leaders have at a point decided to get rid of fur farming, especially mink. Our minister of state used the Corona situation to get rid of the mink farms, in an unelegant and illegal way (an investigation is in progress). She could have done it the same way as Italy. That would have been clean and legal.

    1. I think, at the time, they were scared that the infected mink poised a real danger to the general population. Now, the question is, will China be smart enough to get out of mink farming as well. They could be host to a new Covid in th future.

    2. No, the situation in Denmark was not like that. And there were no “they”, one person made the decision, not taking advice.
      What species will they kill off next? pigs, cows, dogs, cats?
      This was because the large population of minks was seen as a shame for Denmark, politics, nothing else.

    3. They are vaccinating animals now. Wild deer in US have been found with Covid. It seems that farmed animals are not a big source of the virus – although, they might be able to catch it from people and then need culling to protect herds/flocks – similar as to how avian influenza is handled in poultry industry. Fruit bats seem to be the biggest danger-starting point for Covid.
