Minks Test Positive for COVID-19 on Two Farms in the Netherlands

Two mink farms were closed after animals had shown respiratory symptoms and tested positive for the coronavirus in a small town of Beek en Donk in the North Brabant province, Sunday.

Footage shows tape cordoning off buildings of a mink farm.

“Because some employees had symptoms of the coronavirus at both farms, it is assumed that animals have been infected by people,” said the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality in the statement.

“Currently there is no indication that domestic or farm animals play any role in the spread of COVID-19… and there is no risk that the viral infection will be passed back to humans,” the ministry added.

The North Brabant province has been among the hardest hit by the coronavirus. According to the data compiled by Johns Hopkins University, the Netherlands has reported 38,040 COVID-19 cases and 4,491 deaths related to the virus.
