Editor's Note:
COVID-19 tests were seen conducted on the outer packaging of frozen boneless beef and loin in Wuhan’s frozen food storage warehouses, with products imported from Brazil through Qingdao customs in East China’s Shandong Province, as local epidemic prevention personnel place increased scrutiny on imported frozen products. The frozen meat placed in storage is imported from all over the world, including Brazil, New Zealand and Australia, a person in charge told the Global Times.
There are dozens of staff and disease control personnel inside the warehouse, and they are not allowed to freely move outside likely due to potential COVID-19 risks. The Global Times reporters saw imported meats from Australian brand GJ placed in the warehouse.
Wuhan has been following highly strict “red-zone” management processes in controlling the storage, transportation, and circulation of frozen products. By performing tests on outer packaging samples, all imported frozen products can be traced and potential risks become under control.
