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. Infected animals posing a risk to humans is a new factor in the fight against Covid-19 that could threaten the efficiency of future vaccines as well. Right now, the focus is on halting any future cases.

The method of culling will definitely play a key role in this. Manufacturers like Celitron are already stepping up with new solutions like the MOBILE AGRI Unit: a special sterilizing and rendering equipment that can even handle the safe disposal of carcasses infected with animal diseases.
