世卫组织:新冠病毒不会通过食品和包装传播


近日,新西兰再现新冠肺炎本土病例,感染源疑似来自冷冻食品包装。世界卫生组织则表示,没有证据表明新冠病毒能通过食品和包装传播。

The World Health Organization said on Thursday it saw no evidence of coronavirus being spread by food or packaging and urged people not to be afraid of the virus entering the food chain.

世界卫生组织8月13日表示,没有发现新冠病毒通过食品或包装传播的证据,并让人们不用担心病毒会进入食物链。

Two cities in China said they had found traces of the coronavirus in imported frozen chicken wings from Brazil and on outer packaging of frozen Ecuadorian shrimp, raising fears that contaminated food shipments might cause a new outbreak.

中国的两个城市称,在从巴西进口的冷冻鸡翅和从厄瓜多尔进口的冷冻虾外包装上发现了新冠病毒,引发了人们对于食品运输过程中的污染可能导致新一波疫情的担忧。

"People should not fear food, or food packaging or processing or delivery of food," WHO head of emergencies programme Mike Ryan told a briefing in Geneva. "There is no evidence that food or the food chain is participating in transmission of this virus. And people should feel comfortable and safe."
