  • Dutch Minks Contract COVID-19 — And Appear To Infect Humans

    By PIEN HUANG 4 HOURS AGO

    ... It's part of an emerging pattern of animals getting infected with the novel coronavirus with a new concern: The minks are thought to have passed the disease back to humans. Since the discovery, more than 500,000 minks have been culled on fur farms in the Netherlands over worries that their mink populations could spread the virus among humans.

    The minks were first exposed to the coronavirus by infected farm workers, according to Wim van der Poel, a veterinarian who studies viruses at Wageningen University & Research in the Netherlands. Then the virus spread among the animals in the farms like wildfire.


    ... The findings from the mink farm adds an concerning layer to our understanding of how the virus spreads because infected minks are thought to have passed the virus back to people, according to Dutch government reports. At least two farm workers are believed to have caught the novel coronavirus from handling the minks or breathing virus-contaminated clouds of dust.

    The situation confirms a longstanding concern among researchers which has, until now, been hypothetical: In some animal-to-human interactions, the virus can transmit both ways. "It's another route of transmission that we have to worry about," says Kevin Olival, an ecologist at EcoHealth Alliance, a nonprofit that monitors for emerging diseases. "And if the virus somehow establishes itself in animal populations or in other wildlife populations around the world, it'll be really hard to eradicate it if it keeps spilling back into the human population."

    Visiblement, cela ne peut se découvrir par eux, car ce ne doit être, et de loin, la première fois ...
    L'audit de cette structure sera accessible quand d'une part et d'autre part les protocoles de sécurité de humains et animaux sera accessible quand?

      Dutch Parliament Votes to Close Mink Fur Farms Following COVID-19 Outbreaks

      June 23, 2020

      The Netherlands is one of 24 countries where mink farming is still legal. In a historic move, the Dutch parliament has voted to permanently close the mink fur
      farms shut down by COVID-19.
      ...
      Mink fur farming has been slowly phasing out in the Netherlands since a vote in 2013 to close all farms by the beginning of 2024. The spread of COVID-19 among mink across multiple farms since April resulted in at least two workers catching the virus from the animals and triggered calls for the government to rapidly shut down the industry. “Waiting until 2024 for the mink ban to take effect would have been unjustifiable and irresponsible,” says Sandra Schoenmakers, director of Dutch anti-fur organizations Bont voor Dieren. The latest available figures show that nearly 600,000 mink across 13 farms had been killed by gassing with carbon monoxide on the orders of the Dutch government, but many more are likely to be killed in the coming weeks...

        Oui, je sais,

        être vétérinaire ce n'est pas simple. Mais ceux qui prennent ce type de décision, dans ce type de pays, ont une bien autre éthique que les branleurs cités d'eco ...

        D'un coté vous avez un état démocratique qui en utilisant tous les maillons de la chaine qualité a produit une première mondiale d'une part et d'autre part pris une décision, suite à un débat démocratique, dont on peut discuter le résultat , mais c'est une décision démocratique...

        Del'autre vous avez des bouffeurs de crédits , qui n'ont rien évité et rien produit de lumineux et qui veulent continuer de foutre le bordel chez les autres , sans avoir rien fait aux U.S.A ...

        J'espère que la Chine et les chinois vont désormais savoir qui doit être valorisé et qui être ré- envoyé travailler dans leur pays ...


        En tout cas en Europe , le choix ne changera pas ...
