Health officials said that over 100,000 mink at a farm in north-eastern Spain are to be culled after many of them tested positive for coronavirus. The outbreak in Aragon province was discovered after a farm employee's wife contracted the virus in May. Her husband and six other farm workers have since tested positive for the virus. Tests on 13 July showed that 87% of the mink were infected, and that's why all 92,700 will be culled.
