As stated in the message of the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA) dated March 9, 2020, there is no evidence of contamination through food yet. This is reported by rbc.ua.
The agency’s chief research officer, Martha Hugas, said: “Experience gained from previous outbreaks of related coronaviruses such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV) and Middle East Acute Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) show that foodborne transmission is not is happening. “
Also in the EFSA report, it was indicated that the coronavirus infection spreads through person-to-person transmission, mainly through sneezing, coughing and exhaling. However, there is no evidence of a relationship with food. And also so far there is no evidence that the new type of coronavirus differs from its predecessors in this regard.
But food will help fight viruses if you make the daily menu as balanced and vitamin-rich as possible, include foods and drinks in it to strengthen the immune system.
