0

Chinese CDC detected living coronavirus on the outer packaging of frozen cod fish. It advised workers who handle, process and sell frozen products should avoid skin contact.

REUTERS: China’s disease control authority said that contact with frozen food packaging contaminated by living new coronavirus could cause infection… The finding, a world first, suggests it is possible for the virus to be conveyed over long distances via frozen goods, it said…

The conclusion came as the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) detected and isolated living coronavirus on the outer packaging of frozen cod during efforts to trace the virus in an outbreak reported last week in the city of Qingdao, the agency said on its website…

Two dock workers in Qingdao were infected… However, the CDC’s latest statement does not show solid proof that the two workers in Qingdao caught the virus from the packaging directly… The CDC said no instance had been found of any consumer contracting the virus by having contact with frozen food and the risk of this happening remained very low.

Prior to the CDC’s latest findings genetic traces of the virus had been found in some samples taken from frozen food or food packaging, but the amount of virus was low and no living virus was isolated, the agency said… Nonetheless it advised that workers who handle, process and sell frozen products should avoid direct skin contact with products that could possibly be polluted.
