Christian Fernsby |
There may have been another case of mink to human coronavirus transmission at a second mink farm in the Netherlands.

Three people who work at this mink farm have a coronavirus that has a genetic code very similar to the virus found in minks on the farm, Ministers Carola Schouten of Agriculture and Hugo de Jonge of Public Health said in a letter to parliament.

"On the basis of the information available, it is most likely that at least one of the three infected persons was infected by a mink," the Ministers said.

The other two may have gotten the virus from the first infected person, or also from a mink.

Based on the available data, that is impossible to say, the Ministers said.
