Mutations and Minks

    Reading about the Mink cull in Denmark due to a CoronaVirus mutation.
    Was interested to see the worry is the spike protein, which has remained stable so far, started to mutate, rendering vaccines ineffective. It has not changed enough currently to completely void them, but signs are that it had started to.
    Hence the cull.

    For me, it emphasises the importance of zero covid.
    Why are we allowing this virus the chance to mutate and change?

    And according to the article, over 50% of Danish infections are with this new strain. Fabulous.
