The Chinese port city of Shenzhen requires extra tests on frozen meat and seafood after they detected traces of COVID-19 on food imports last week.
The city government announced the move on its microblog on 17 August. It has set up a central warehouse where all imported foods must be cleared through customs. The cargoes will undergo further COVID-19 tests before being sold or processed in the city.
The new warehouse, expected to begin operations on 18 August, will sterilise outer packaging and run coronavirus tests on samples of frozen meat and seafood.
