" Spillover of SARS-CoV-2 from humans to mink and minks to humans is not a new finding. It was first reported in the Netherlands in April 2020 and since has been found in Spain, Italy, the USA, Sweden, and Greece. "

" A major concern is the potential formation of a non-human reservoir from where the viruses could be reintroduced once circulation of SARS-CoV-2 in humans is suppressed or even stopped. "
