Traces of the coronavirus on meat imports from South America


Chinese authorities have found traces of the coronavirus on beef imports from South America. Chinese customs announced yesterday that traces were discovered on two frozen packages from an Argentine importer and imports have been suspended.

A day earlier, health authorities in the Chinese city of Wuhan, where the corona pandemic originated in late 2019, had also found traces of the Sars-CoV-2 virus on beef packages from Brazil, according to state media. Just a few days ago, China identified a pork shank imported from Germany as the trigger for a new corona case.
