Expert says food, food packaging or food handling isn’t a source for SARS-CoV-2 resulting in Covid-19

A group of specialists on food defilement says it is profoundly far-fetched that food is a wellspring of Covid-19 transmission. The International Commission on Microbiological Specifications for Foods (ICMSF) took a gander at the proof that COVID-19 may be carried on food or its covering and discovered practically nothing. Their discovery resembles prior revealing from the US Food and Drug Administration that there is no genuine danger of getting the infection that causes Covid-19 from food or food covering.

“To date, there has not been any evidence that food, food packaging or food handling is a source or important transmission route for SARS-CoV-2 resulting in Covid-19. There are no foods that should be considered a risk or warrant consideration as a vector for SARS-CoV-2. While it is possible that people could eat something contaminated with the virus and become infected that way, it’s never been seen to have happened. The focus for food businesses should be on protecting food workers, consumers and restaurant patrons from becoming infected by person-to-person SARS-CoV-2 spread,” the association said in an announcement.
