There are many ways the Coronavirus can spread, through touch and exposure to droplets from sneezing and coughing. Many want to know if the virus can be spread through food.
It’s also know the virus can survive on surfaces for many hours but likely won’t survive on packaging from foods being imported.
Though Coronavirus is highly contagious, it’s not believed the virus can spread directly through food. That’s not to say someone who has the virus can’t spread it by touching food items such as a restaurant cook or food server.
One of the main ways the virus spreads is if a person touches their eyes or mouth after touching a contaminated surface.
