Food Risks Related To COVID-19 -  a bioMérieux White Paper

Affecting more than 210 countries in the world, the COVID-19 outbreak is still highly evolving and uncertain in its final magnitude. To contain the pandemic, entire cities and regions have ordered a collective quarantine, stopping most of the local economic activity.

In this context, food facilities and retailers are considered as critical infrastructures, absolutely essential to people well-being as well as public health.

bioMérieux has recently published a new white paper entitled “Food Risks Related to Covid-19” which contains the currently available information about this pandemic, impacts on the food chain and the measures to adopt in response. The chosen resources have been specially selected to provide food industries/food sector with the most updated information. Nevertheless, while reading this document, please keep in mind the daily progress in our knowledge about this pandemic.

Questions addressed in the white paper include:

  • How can a food product or surface be contaminated by SARS-CoV-2?
  • How long can SARS-CoV-2 survive on food or on surfaces?
  • What is the risk of contamination by SARS-CoV-2 through food, food contact surfaces or food packaging?
  • Should we look for the presence of the virus in food or food contact surfaces?
