The SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus was actively found in the outer component of the packaging of chilled food, reported the China Center for Disease Control and Prevention on Saturday.
The agency detailed in a report that there was a great possibility of infection through such contaminated surfaces, the state broadcaster CCTV reviewed.
The find occurred in food packaging in the coastal city of Qingdao in Shandong province, according to the report.
However, so far the origin of the product has not been specified. Qingdao authorities reported a dozen new COVID-19 cases this month. According to a report by The Bloomberg, most of those infected were related to a hospital where infected travelers outside of China were treated.
Health authorities in the Asian country have reported on several occasions that imported refrigerated products “are risky to reintroduce the coronavirus in the country.”
They indicated that they had previously tested the packaging of products from various countries and had found positive cases of the virus. It subsequently banned imported products, including seafood from Indonesia and chicken wings from Brazil, after testing positive on shipping containers and food packaging.
Representatives of the World Health Organization (WHO) have suggested that there is no evidence that the virus can be transported through food packaging.
