Coronavirus: Dutch farmer may have caught COVID-19 from mink, says minister

A Dutch mink farm worker likely caught coronavirus from the animals kept there, in the country’s first reported case of animal-to-human transmission, the agriculture minister said.

The case happened on one of two farms near the southern city of Eindhoven where the disease was earlier found among the mammals, which are bred for their valuable fur.

Researchers compared the genetic code of the virus found in the mink to that of the patient, creating a “family tree” to map its mutation, minister Carola Schouten said late Tuesday.

“It is concluded from this investigation that it is plausible that one employee of an infected mink farm was infected by mink,” Schouten said in a letter to parliament.

The odds are much higher that the team doing the inspections were the place the contagion came from.
Fur sales globally have dropped 50% in the last few years. This is a way to get the trappers top dollar for a product that has no buyer.
Canada put out the same alert so I expect they will do the same, kill the older ones without selling the fur and keep the breeding stock in case sales pick up again.
The only animal to catch it is also the only animal that could wipe out the rat population in any slum and be a family pet at the same time.

The surveillance operations took place between August 24 and October 30, and saw the involvement of the US Geological Survey, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and State Departments of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Health.

The project was being conducted to determine whether the virus can be spread to nearby wildlife away from the infected mink farms.

“There is currently no evidence that SARS-CoV-2 is circulating or has been established in wild populations surrounding the infected mink farms,” reads the alert. “Several animals from different wildlife species were sampled, but all others tested negative.”

“The sequence of the viral genome obtained from the wild mink sample at NVSL [National Veterinary Services Laboratories] was indistinguishable from those obtained from the farmed mink,” the advisory added.
