So, are imported cherries still edible?
How should I wash it?
Will eating cherries infect new crowns?
In this regard, some media interviewed Luan Rongsheng, chairman of the epidemiology branch of Sichuan Preventive Medical Association and professor of epidemiology at West China School of Public Health of Sichuan University. He answered these questions.
Are imported cherries still edible?
Luan Rongsheng: It’s not a big problem.
Cherries and other fruits are washed or peeled before they are eaten.
Although in the process of processing, handling and transportation, the surface of the fruit may be contaminated by some, but generally after cleaning, the vast majority of viruses on the surface of the fruit can be removed.
Can eating contaminated cherries infect new crowns?
Luan Rongsheng: Novel coronavirus does not have a digestive tract transmission route, so even if a small amount of virus enters the human body through the digestive tract, it will not be infected.
And animal tests have shown that animals fed contaminated food have not been infected or spread, so there is no cause for undue concern or panic.
Then why does cold chain food/goods pass from person to person?
Luan Rongsheng: Cold chain food means that after perishable food is purchased or caught from the origin, it must be kept in a low temperature environment in the processing, storage, transportation, distribution and retail of the product until it reaches the consumers.
Why does cold chain food/goods pass from person to person?
Because frozen food itself is kept at a low temperature, if contaminated, the virus will survive longer.
Secondly, in the place of frozen food processing, the temperature is lower and the space is more airtight. If there is a source of infection in the processing place at this time, it will cause human-to-human transmission or material transmission.
If there are more sources of infection, there is a greater chance that the virus will spill out, so there is a greater chance that the cold chain food will be contaminated.
However, fruits are different from cold-chain foods. Fruits cannot be frozen for a long time or cannot be frozen. In addition, the environment is ventilated and the temperature is higher than that of cold-chain foods when they are not in the frozen environment.
There have been no known cases of infection from eating fruit, so the risk is extremely low.
The public can also remove most of the virus from the surface of fruit by rinsing it with water.
In addition, the physical transmission of cold chain food is not by the infected person eating the cold chain food, but through contact transmission.
That is, the hands and other parts of the body touch contaminated frozen food or contaminated packaging, and then touch the mouth, eyes, nose and so become infected.
And what can be transmitted by contact is exposure to high concentrations of large droplets and high concentrations of contaminated frozen food/items.
How to wash cherries properly?
Luan Rongsheng: running water can be cleaned.
For other peelable fruits, it is recommended to eat them after peeling.
How is national import commodity eliminated kill or quarantine?
Luan Rongsheng: import goods to go through two.
First is the import quarantine link, by the customs is responsible for.
Inspection and quarantine includes the quarantine of people, animals and plants, and articles, while the pollution rate of imported cold chain food is one in hundreds of thousands, very low.
Next it is food safety clearance, by food and drug administration department is responsible for.
As long as these two gateways are secured, the risk of goods reaching consumers is extremely low.
What should consumers pay attention to on a daily basis?
Luan Rongsheng: For consumers, they should pay attention to food hygiene, and cook other edible foods thoroughly before eating them.
