Viruses can survive up to two years at temperatures of minus 20°C, but scientists and officials say there is no strong evidence so far that the coronavirus can spread through frozen food.
The health authority assured that there is no need for panic as there were also no previous cases of COVID-19 being transmitted exclusively through food. Some have called for a halt on imported frozen food products.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) says it is very unlikely you can catch coronavirus from food.
The CDC recommends washing your hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling food, or before cooking and eating food.
She stressed that the Chinese authorities examined hundreds of thousands of samples on the packaging and detected the presence of the virus in less than ten packages. The lifespan of the virus on objects depends on the type of material: One study found that it took three hours for the virus to leave tissue and printing paper, while other research suggests viral particles can live up to a day on cardboard and up to three days on plastic and stainless steel.
The virus is unable to replicate on the surface of food or packaging.
