Israel has now been hit with the Covid mink mutation, becoming the seventh country to contract the new strain
Israel is feared to be the seventh country hit with the mutated strain of coronavirus contracted from minks, as three people are being tested after returning from a trip to Denmark.
Israeli Health Minister is said to be “very concerned” and has ordered the immediate testing of the Israeli citizens who just returned from the Scandinavian country. If positive, Israel will join the US, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Sweeden and, of course, Denmark.
The Danish government has culled some 17 million minks after a mutated strain of coronavirus was discovered on mink farms, which can spread to humans.
Scientists believe the virus jumped from farm workers to minks in the summer, before mutating and being passed back to humans.
A total of five different strains of mutant mink coronavirus have now been found in 214 people in Denmark.
