The role of minks in the infection process has been under discussion already since May. (At that time, an employee of a mink farm in the Netherlands was infected by the fur animals.)
The Danish health institute SSI reported on Friday that the mutated pathogen was detected in 214 people. 200 cases occurred in Northern Jutland alone. This region is particularly rich in mink farms.
Nationwide, Sars-CoV-2 has already been found in 216 breeding farms.
