Denmark: Sixth Danish Mink Farm Infected by Coronavirus

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Denmark is the world’s largest producer of mink skins. Since July 2020, the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration (DVFA) has monitored Denmark's 1,200 mink farms for the presence of the coronavirus (COVID-19). As of this report, Danish authorities have identified six mink farms where COVID-19 has been detected. With a monitoring strategy and the stricter restrictions for infected mink farms, the DVFA and the Danish health authorities assess that it is justifiable to let infected herds live because the risk of spreading infection to humans is minimal. Henceforth, the DVFA will no longer issue press releases on individual findings of COVID-19 on Danish mink farms. Instead, herds with confirmed infections will be identified on the DVFA’s website: https://www.foedevarestyrelsen.dk.
