Beijing tells frozen food importers to avoid 'high-risk nations'

Sep 28, 2020 17:33 IST

Beijing has urged importers of food companies in the Chinese capital to stop importing products from countries that have been heavily impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. 

The announcement comes amid rising fears of virus transmission via food packaging. While the city government did not name any countries, the mandate asked food firms to avoid high-risk nations. 

The move comes after China reported its first mysterious case of local asymptomatic infection in more than a month where two port workers responsible for unloading frozen seafood tested positive.
