The risks associated with Covid-19 spreading from animals to humans are no laughing matter anymore. A new mutated strain of the coronavirus has appeared at several mink farms in Denmark, and has already spread to more than 200 people.
Yet another possible escalation amidst the Covid-19 pandemic: Denmark, the number 1 mink producer in the world is planning to cull over 15 million minks in the country, after a mutated version of the coronavirus has spread from the animals and infected 12 people.
Insect farming seems to be such a good business opportunity, that even the notorious “Iron Man” cannot pass it up. Robert Downey Jr. is the latest investor of one of the biggest insect farms being built in Northern France.
Even amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, Germany must now prepare to face another crisis in the form of an African swine fever outbreak.
As shown by the current scale of the coronavirus, without proper sterilization equipment and effective carcass disposal options, if diseases originating in animals are left unchecked, they can easily lead to pandemics.
