Surprising event that occurred in China related to the coronavirus. As Sky News reveals, the Tianjin authorities have discovered a batch of ice cream contaminated by the pathogen. Because of this, there is now a tracking of people who may have been in contact with the packages, which were produced by Tianjin Daqiaodao Food Company.

The firm produced 4,836 boxes of contaminated ice cream, of which 2,089 were sealed in warehouses. Also, of the 2,747 boxes were put up for sale, 935 were in Tianjin and 65 units were sold. Thus, those who have purchased it have been required to report their health and mobility to monitor their condition.

Imported products

The first investigations indicate that the company produced the ice cream batch using various raw materials, including powdered milk imported from New Zealand and whey powder from Ukraine.

Despite sounding alarming, Dr. Stephen Griffin, virologist at the University of Leedsstated in Sky News that should not be cause for panic: “It is likely that this it came from a person, and without knowing the details, I think it’s probably something unique. “

“Of course, any level of contamination is not acceptable and is always a cause for concern, but this is most likely the result of a problem with the production plant and possibly due to hygiene in the factory. Probably we should not panic because every ice cream is suddenly going to be contaminated with coronavirus “added the expert.


The 1,662 company employees were quarantined and they underwent nucleic acid tests last Thursday, following the instructions of the Tianjin Center for Disease Control.
