The Chinese center for disease control (cdc) reported that on some packages of frozen food for the first time koronawirys, the trigger may be an infection have been Live. The risk for the consumer, if the usually occurs, but is minimal.
Living microorganisms discovered for weeks, during the studies for the detection of traces of their presence in various locations in the city of Qingdao. The Chinese center for disease control reported about it on your Website.
According To Reuters it is the first such discovery in the world. Believed that the Coronavirus is moved in conjunction with frozen packages of food in other places. The risk for the consumer, if the usually occurs, but is minimal. A little more may be staff, the food, the congestion and the transportation of deep-frozen are at risk. But this is only in the suspicion.
At the Moment it is known that in September of the year 2020 infection koronawirusem SARS-CoV were detected 2, the two employees of the Qingdao port, which is one of the largest ports in the world, located in the southern part of the Peninsula Шанченге). Not show any symptoms, but because of the inadequate arrangements at a local hospital, where we were infection moved to twelve other people.
The Chinese center for disease control emphasized in a statement that so far, no suspects koronawirusem consumers were able to infect through contact with the cold food. Such risks, is considered to be very low.
Prof. Dong Jin-Yan, a virologist at the University of Hong Kong, the attention is directed to the fact that no solid evidence that the workers in the port of Qingdao infected by direct contact with the packaging of frozen food, and not somewhere else. Perhaps, therefore, that the affected already, and then transfer the germs on the packaging of frozen foods.
The CDC assumes, however, that employees avoided the direct contact of the skin with the packaging of frozen foods. One should also not touch of the mouth and nose, even when working with gloves (because they may be infected). Remember that it is necessary, a systematic hand-washing and disinfection.
According to the center, which previously there were reports that on frozen food and food packaging found, the residues of the genetic material of viruses. Was not marked, however, by living microorganisms.
Prof. Dong Jin-Yan also stressed that diagnostic Tests are remnants of viruses can discover, however, only living bacteria can possibly cause an infection. Other experts point out that the appropriate dose of the Virus should be to lead to infections.
