Our morning radio news had this item, and then they added that so far Finland has not yet had a case in its fur farms.

Dr. Campbell poses the essential question:  "Why, oh why are we taking the risk."

If it's in the mink you can bet your bottom dollar that its in other animals......

As Dr Campbell says, 

"potential resevioir for virus in animals "

Which means it's here to stay.....

In one form or another!!!!!!???


Scary times.....ahead....

The strain of the coronavirus seems to have emerged in the Netherlands not in Denmark, but they are reporting no human infections.   So did the mutation occur twice?  Or, were some minks transported from the Netherlands to Denmark (despite the claim that all were culled)?

Originally posted by "BBC" "BBC" wrote:

The coronavirus mutation causing concern in Denmark has arisen before in mink, scientists have revealed.

The mutated virus has been detected retrospectively in mink at a farm in the Netherlands, but it did not spread to humans, said a leading Dutch expert.

...

The Danish genome sequences were recently released on a public database, allowing scientists in other countries to look for evidence of the mutation. 

Prof Wim van der Poel, a veterinary expert at Wageningen University, said analysis of genetic data from the Netherlands revealed one previous case of the mutation at a mink farm there.

He told BBC News: "We have once seen a mutant virus with a comparable mutation in the spike protein encoding region, in mink in the Netherlands, but this mutant did not spread to humans and the mink of the involved farm were culled."

https://www.thenationalnews.com/world/england-imposes-denmark-travel-ban-as-mink-mutation-spreads-across-europe-1.1108015


The UK government imposed an emergency ban on flights and ships to England from Denmark to try to stop the spread of a new strain of coronavirus linked to mink farms.

The WHO said on Friday that six European countries had detected the new mutation, sparking fears it might override the effectiveness of a Covid-19 vaccine.


Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the US have also discovered the coronavirus in mink.

Stricter measures to curb the spread led to a ban on passenger planes from Denmark and on ships docking in English ports on Saturday.

On Sunday, the ban was extended to all non-UK freight drivers who have travelled through Denmark in the past 14 days and all UK citizens wishing to enter England were told they must isolate for 14 days.


Dash to test and trace Denmark returnees


Given the significant unknowns regarding the new mutation of Covid-19 originating in Denmark, we have moved quickly to protect our citizens and prevent the spread of the virus to the UK,” the Department of Transport said.

“The UK government is working closely with international partners to understand the changes in the virus that have been reported in Denmark and we are conducting a programme of further research here in the UK to inform our risk assessments.”

Health officials are trying to test and trace at least 6,000 people who flew into the UK from Denmark in the past fortnight.
