It's not dying I'm talking about, it's living.

Rats as big as bunnies are roaming the streets in broad daylight, nesting in trees and chewing through car engine wires that can cost thousands to fix. And there are so many that residents are kvetching about them every chance they get — 311 hotline complaints about rats have totaled 12,632 so far this year — a third more than the 9,042 for all of 2019.

With the Upper West Side teeming with the hungry critters, Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal and the city Health Department sponsored the latest incarnation of “Rat Academy,” two hours of rat prevention training livestreamed Tuesday to nearly four dozen supers, tenants and homeowners. The city began such training sessions about 10 years ago.

Wonder if they can spread COVID? We know that Minks can
I haven't seen any follow up on that. The country could have over reacted I heard. The tests themselves are capable of falsely identifying other sars variants and could have picked up one in the minks that is not transmittable to humans.
Like I said though, since I read that I've seen no follow up
