The virus that is found in the mink at a mink farm in the far east in the Municipality of Hjørring is the same, as has been found in minkavleren and in those infected at the nursing home Vendelbocentret.
It writes bbc News, who have had it confirmed by Anders Fomsgaard, who is the chief physician and virusforsker at the Statens Serum Institut.
He says, that they have used their brand-new genetic tool on samples from minkene on the farm in the far east, on the minkavlerne, who are ill, and residents of the nearby Vendelbocenter.
- And we can see that it is one and the same virus. They have infected each other, he says to DR News.
Anders Fomsgaard, however, can not say, who has infected whom in the first place. It must be some other studies to determine the sounds.
the Superintendent says further, that the State Serum Institute is now to investigate how the infection has spread with the support from the Danish Agency for Patient safety and the Danish veterinary and food administration.
the Statens Serum Institute, writes in a news item on its website also, that one can not say, who has infected whom.
- the SSI can also not say exactly how long the infection has been with minkene and with the people affected, but there are extended analyses and smitteopsporing to uncover this question, it sounds.
the Institute writes that there is talk about a local smittekæde:
- For the SSI tests indicate that this version of the Covid-19 virus has some mutations in common, only found precisely in these mink and at the sick persons in the far east.
- The not show up in the virus elsewhere in Denmark or Europe, so it is apparently not a foreign contagion.
