China's Wuhan finds coronavirus on packaging of imported frozen meat


Two imported frozen food packaging samples tested positive for the novel coronavirus in Wuhan, capital of central China's Hubei Province, local health authorities said Sunday.


According to the city's health commission, the samples were taken from a batch of frozen pork imported from Brazil and a batch of frozen beef from Uruguay.


Local authorities have taken emergency measures to seal the imported frozen goods and disinfect the storage facilities and the surrounding environment.


The frozen pork imports consisting of 1,527 boxes and weighing 27.49 tonnes were shipped from Brazil to Shanghai on June 28. They were transported from Shanghai to Wuhan on July 27 and stored at a local cold storage on July 29.


The frozen beef contained in 1,210 boxes, weighing 26.93 tonnes, was shipped to north China's Tianjin Municipality on March 2. It reached Wuhan on March 28.


The nucleic acid test results of 511 samples from the cold storage, 460 samples from the frozen food packaging and 524 samples from local employees were all negative for COVID-19. 



A total of 43 people have been placed under quarantine after a frozen-food sample in northeast China's Heilongjiang Province tested positive for novel coronavirus, local authorities said Saturday.


Authorities in Harbin, capital of Heilongjiang Province, have launched an emergency response after a third-party inspection agency found a frozen-food sample from a local trading company that tested positive for the coronavirus on Friday, according to the Harbin epidemic response headquarters.


As of 5 p.m. Saturday, 43 close contacts had been quarantined in designated places and 109 were under observation at home.


A total of 1,350 samples from these people, food products and the surrounding environment have been taken. The 989 samples tested so far all showed negative results.


Authorities have disinfected and sealed off the processing and storage facilities of the frozen-food products and sealed up the related frozen-food production materials and semi-finished products.


Authorities are tracking the infection source of the virus.


Also on Saturday, authorities in Yaodu district in the city of Linfen, north China's Shanxi Province, announced that the outer packaging of imported fish product from a local farm-produce market tested positive for the virus.
