First bats, now Danish mink. How worried should we be?

Coronacast 9 de noviembre de 2020 8

Millions of small carnivorous animals in Denmark – otherwise known as mink – are being killed due to concerns that they might pass a mutated form of coronavirus onto humans.

The animal, which looks a little bit like a ferret, is prized for its fur in making coats.

The concern is that the mutated strain of the virus might not be susceptible to the vaccines currently in development.

On today’s Coronacast, how worried should we be?

Also on today’s show:

* What do we miss when we keep older people out of vaccine trials?

* Norman do you really believe all these Victorian zeros?

* Placebo effect aside, would gargling scotch help treat a COVID-19 infection?
