Minks with mutated virus can destroy the effect of COVID-19 vaccine

Mink farms can develop into “virus factories” that can inhibit vaccines, explains the chief physician.

The Statens Serum Institut confirms this after it criticism emerged against the authorities currently cracking down and killing both sick and healthy mink animals.

The minks in North Jutland are infected with a special variation of COVID-19, and the same mutation has been found in infected people in the area, says chief physician Anders Fomsgaard, responsible for virus research and development at the Statens Serum Institut.
