Officials in a city in the northeast of China have discovered coronavirus on a package of frozen seafood imported from Russia. The virus was found during a routine inspection in Changchun, the capital of Jilin province.

According to the Beijing news agency Xinhua, local authorities found Covid-19 on imported frozen squid. Officials have since tracked down anyone who came into contact with the package, and placed them under medical supervision. They all tested negative for coronavirus, Xinhua reports.

On Monday, Russia’s agricultural watchdog, Rosselkhoznadzor, told the Interfax news agency that it had not yet received official notification from China about the discovery of Covid-19. (RT)
