USA Today: Dead minks infected with a mutated form of COVID-19 rise from graves after mass culling

WARNING: This is really gross. USA Today: Dead minks infected with a mutated form of COVID-19 rise from graves after mass culling. “Minks infected with a mutated strain of COVID-19 in Denmark appear to be rising from the dead, igniting a national frenzy and calls from local officials to cremate mink carcasses. While the sight itself is certainly terrifying for the residents of West Jutland, a region of the country grappling with confirmed COVID-19 cases connected to mink, there is likely a scientific explanation for the zombie-like reemergence from their graves.”

Washington Post: Danish cabinet minister resigns over mink culling order that has shaken highest levels of government

Washington Post: Danish cabinet minister resigns over mink culling order that has shaken highest levels of government. “Denmark’s agriculture minister resigned Wednesday amid falling trust in government, after conceding the lack of a legal basis for a questionable order earlier in the month to kill the country’s entire population of more than 15 million farmed minks to contain a coronavirus mutation. Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen faced calls from the opposition to do the same.”
