More than 1,000 minks to be killed due to COVID-19 detection on a farm in Spain

In the Spanish province of Avila, 1,010 American minks will be destroyed after cases of coronavirus infection on a breeding farm. This is reported by TASS with reference to a press release from the regional cabinet.

It is noted that the decision was made by the government of the Spanish Autonomous Community of Castile and Leon. The fact of infection of animals was recorded as part of a program for the prevention, surveillance and control of SARS-CoV-2 on farms.

It is noted that this is the third case of an outbreak of infection on a mink farm in the country. The previous one was a farm in the province of A Coruña. More than three thousand minks lived here.

The day before, a tigress who fell ill with COVID-19 was euthanized at a Swedish zoo. Due to illness, the animal began to quickly lose its appetite, and the tigress’s condition worsened. In this regard, the 17-year-old predator was euthanized.

Several lions have also become infected and have mild symptoms.
