In the Netherlands, tens of thousands of minks are being culled after they infected several farmers with the coronavirus.

The Dutch government says this is to prevent farms from becoming long-term reservoirs of COVID-19.

Researchers are urging other countries such as Denmark and Spain to also test their animals.
