Beijing: – The Health Administration of China has confirmed the corona virus being found alive on the outer surface of imported refrigerated marine fish packets in the port city of Qingdao. The Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said in a statement on Saturday that this is the first time in the world that corona virus has been found alive on the outer surface of refrigerated food packets. Recently a ‘cluster’ of Kovid-19 cases came up in the city. The administration investigated all its nearly 1.1 crore citizens but no new ‘cluster’ was found.
In July, China imposed a temporary ban on the import of refrigerated prawns as the deadly virus was found in packets and containers. The CDC said it found the virus alive outside a packet of imported cod fish in Qingdao.
