Coronavirus is causing concern

  • Post category:Yleinen

According to current knowledge, COVID-19, a fast-spreading human coronavirus infection worldwide, does not infect farmed animals and does not spread via food.

The greatest risk to animal production is now the labor shortage caused by quarantine due to the illness or infection of the producer or of the employees at the farm.

In all situations, about animal care and welfare has to be taken care of.
