Potential for foodborne transmission of SARS-CoV-19? - updated literature review
Joanne Kingsbury and Rob Lake at ESR have been on constant watch for any evidence from overseas pointing to food as a transmission route for SARS-CoV-2. They have just produced another comprehensive literature review. Good news. Bottom line, they conclude:
“There is still no evidence that food is a source or a transmission route for SARS-CoV-2, and there is very low risk of spread from food products or packaging despite billions of meals having been consumed since the start of the pandemic".
