FSSAI: Coronavirus doesn't spread through chicken, mutton and seafood

Mar 05, 2020 16:24 IST

With rampant rumour-mongering over the coronavirus outbreak, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India has said, that there is no scientific evidence to show that coronavirus spreads through eating chicken, mutton or seafood. The FSSAI chief also said that the virus would not survive in higher temperature. He said India is a tropical country and once the temperature crosses 35-36 degrees celsius, no virus will survive. He however urged people to take precautions.
