Ice Cream Tests Positive For Covid-19 In China

Three samples of ice cream have tested positive for Covid-19 in China.

Health authorities are now trying to trace people who may have come into contact with the ice cream, which was produced by the Tianjin Daqiaodao Food Company in the northern Tianjin Municipality.

A total of 4,836 boxes could be contaminated, 2,089 of which have now been sealed up and secured, according to China Daily.

Authorities are now in the process of investigating 65 boxes that had been sold in the local market after the positive test results on Thursday (14 January).

Each box contained six ice cream products.

The products were made using milk powder from Ukraine and whey powder from New Zealand.

The virus may have been able to survive on the ice cream due to the cold temperatures it is stored at and the fact it contains fat.

"Of course, any level of contamination is not acceptable and always a cause for concern, but the chances are that this is the result of an issue with the production plant and potentially down to hygiene at the factory.
