Recently, denmark Prime Minister Met Frazerriksen issued a “mink killing order” and planned to kill all farmed minks in the country, the number of which is about 15 to 17 million.
What happened in Denmark?
What happened in Denmark? According to the WHO, 214 people have been found to be infected with the new coronavirus related to mink farms in Denmark since June, and 12 of them have been infected with a “unique” mutant new coronavirus.
This means that the coronavirus may mutate in the cultured mink and be transmitted back to humans.
If mink becomes another important host for the spread of the new coronavirus, the global epidemic will be hit hard again.
Why do you not leave this ruthless hand?
Why do you not leave this ruthless hand? Denmark is one of the largest mink fur producers and exporters in the world. Once the nationwide “hunting and killing order” is issued, the entire industrial chain may be “destroyed.”
Why is this cruel ? Things have to go back to June, so lets start
In Denmark, 34 minks were found to be infected, and coronavirus was detected in a mink farm for the first time. Subsequently, more than 10,000 mink were killed.
The first case of mink farming was confirmed.
The third mink farm was infected with more than 50% mink. A number of infected mink farms were subsequently discovered.
The “mink mutant virus” was found to be transmitted from mink to person in 3 farms.
September 18-October 1
The Danish Serum Institute and the University of Copenhagen report that there is evidence that the “mink mutant virus” has formed a chain of human transmission infection.
Mink breeders face a higher risk of infection than medical staff. The Danish government decided to kill about 1 million infected minks.
76 mink farms were infected, and more than 150 mink farm personnel were diagnosed.
The Prime Minister issued a nationwide “mink killing order.” 207 mink farms have been infected in Denmark.
Why is the mink mutant new coronavirus particularly worthy of vigilance?
Why is the mink mutant new coronavirus particularly worthy of vigilance? Kaul Morback, an expert at the Danish Serum Institute, said that viruses entering different biological systems can cause different types of virus mutations.
Although the new coronavirus has mutated many times before, once the virus is transmitted from animals to humans, it is prone to problems.
The Danish Serum Institute reported that a total of 5 different mink variants of new coronavirus pneumonia have been found in Denmark.
the virus named “cluster 5” raises concerns because it is not very sensitive to the upcoming vaccine and has spread to other parts of the world. Local risk.
Can mutated viruses inhibit vaccine effectiveness?
Can mutated viruses inhibit vaccine effectiveness? Sumia Swaminathan, the chief scientist of the WHO,
said that it is too early to conclude that the mutated new coronavirus will inhibit the effectiveness of the vaccine.
Michael Ryan, head of the WHO’s health emergency project, said that what is worrying is that mammals such as
mink are very suitable animal reservoirs for coronavirus, and coronavirus may gradually change in these species.
Existing evidence shows that the behavior of the mutated new coronavirus is not different, but there may be slight differences
in specific characteristics, but it is still the same virus, and its specific impact will take a long time to be determined.
