In this regard, the government official, Fleming Corrie Marker, revealed that the Danish Veterinary Medicine and Food Administration deals with the execution of infected animals, while the owners of farms within 8 kilometers of an infected farm will have to kill their animals themselves, indicating that the execution process began in the village of Goel West Aalborg, noting that it “may last for months, depending on the spread of the virus,” according to Sputnik.
The Veterinary Medicine Administration said that breeders who have “uninfected” animals will receive 100% compensation, while those who have infected animals will receive less incentive. Denmark is among the largest exporters of mink in the world, producing an estimated 17 million Furs annually.
The execution of mink animals threatens the entire fur industry, and Taj Pedersen, head of the Danish Fur Breeders Association, confirmed that the Corona pandemic could threaten the entire profession, adding: “We have no certainty what to do with the calamity that fell over our heads.”
Scientists are still searching for how the mink animals were infected, and whether they could transmit the virus to humans, and some may have contracted the virus from infected workers, and the Dutch authorities say that “some farm workers were infected with the virus at a later time from mink animals.”
