Ice Cream Tests Positive For Covid-19 In China

Ice cream has been found to have been contaminated with COVID 19 in China as health authorities race to track anyone who came into contact with the batches.

Tests discovered three samples of locally produced ice cream were found to be contaminated in the Tianjin municipality, in the northeast of the country.

Some 4,836 boxes have been identified as contaminated by the Tianjin Daqiaodao Food Company, of which 2,089 have now been sealed in storage.

A further 1,812 was sent to other regions and 935 entered the local market but only 65 were sold, according to China Daily.

All three samples sent to testers tested positive for the virus that has claimed the lives of over 2 million people worldwide.

Epidemiological examinations conducted so far indicate the company produced the batch of ice cream using raw materials, including milk powder shipped from New Zealand and whey powder imported from Ukraine.

Dr Stephen Griffin, a virologist based at the University of Leeds, said the ice cream’s positive test likely originated from human contact and was a one-off, and he told Sky News that the odds are that this was the result of an issue with the production plant and probably down to hygiene at the facility.

And that the ice cream is made with fat and is stored at cold temperatures that would make it easy for the virus to have survived, but he added that we probably don’t need to panic that every bit of ice cream is suddenly going to be infected with the coronavirus.

But who thought of testing ice cream in the first place? Now that’s the million-dollar question. Perhaps they either had contact with someone who tested positive working there and then decided to test the ice cream.

This wins the award for the most drastic attempt to fear monger that I’ve seen so far, even though the media bar was pretty high already, but then the whole world is one big coronavirus, and this is just the tip of the iceberg, and if it can be spread through food, then lockdowns are a joke.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
