Chicken-Wings Tested Positive For Covid-19 Imported From Brazil in China, But There’s No Evidence Of Food Transmission, Experts Claims – Insiderfolks, Chinese officials reported on Thursday that a surface sample of chicken wings imported from Brazil tested positive for COVID-19.
However, there is no proof that the coronavirus may be spread by consuming or handling fruit, according to health experts.
Health officials in the Shenzhen Longgang District checked manufactured frozen food Wednesday when a surface sample of frozen chicken wings tested positive for coronavirus, according to a statement issued by the Shenzhen Disease Prevention and Control Headquarters.
The Agency then tested other products and people who could have been in contact with chicken wings. Both checks have reported negative, the statement added.

Although others have taken to Twitter to share their frustration, recent research suggests that coronaviruses, such as COVID-19, are mainly transmitted by person-to – person communication, according to guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“There is no evidence to suggest that handling food or consuming food is related to COVID-19,” says the CDC.
However, it is possible to catch the virus by contacting the contaminated surface or item, like fruit or drug wrapping, says the CDC. The chance, however, is very small.
According to the CDC, there have been no reported instances in which a individual has become poisoned by handling fruit, food packages or shopping bags.
Guidelines from the World Health Organisation often note that the transmission of food is especially impossible. “Coronaviruses can not replicate in food; they require an animal or human host to reproduce,” says the WHO.
CNN stated that the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein said: “It is not yet known when the packaging became tainted and if it happened during the export process.”
The Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture said that the Chinese authorities had not told them of the accident, CNN said.
Brazil has the second-highest number of COVID-19 illnesses and fatalities, according to reports from Johns Hopkins University. It has more than 3 million reported cases and more than 104,000 deaths.
