“There is some confusion surrounding the current Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak that began in December 2019 and whether you can get it through food. Here is some information:
Feb 26 UPDATE: The Chinese CDC is investigating the possibility that the virus can be spread through fecal matter that could possibly... contaminate food and water. The Chinese CDC has found live viruses in stool samples of COVID-19 patients and can be a partial explanation for the rapid spread of the disease. The agency is recommending strengthening sanitation and hygiene measures.
What is Coronavirus?
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses found in both animals and humans. Past outbreaks include Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The current novel(a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans) Coronavirus strain called 2019-nCoV is thought to originate in live food markets in Wuhan, China through animals and human contact.
How is it transmitted?
Coronaviruses strains are usually transmitted through the respiratory system, so it is typically thought of as a low risk of infection from contaminated food. Restaurants can be a site of transmission of coronavirus because of the large numbers of people congregating in close quarters and then coughing/sneezing could spread the disease just like in other places (transportation, schools, etc). But the food itself normally isn’t a likely vehicle.
The current Coronavirus strains 2019-nCoV has been found in stool samples of COVID-19 patients by the Chinese CDC which means that the current outbreak might be transmitted from multiple routes not just through the respiratory system as usual.
Signs of infection?
Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases and those with weakened immune systems, an infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death.
World Health Organization (WHO) recommends standard measures to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth+nose when coughing/sneezing, and avoiding close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing. Additional recommendations from the Chinese CDC include strengthening health publicity and education; maintaining environmental health and personal hygiene; drinking boiled water, avoiding raw food consumption, and implementing separate meal systems in epidemic areas; frequently washing hands and disinfecting of surfaces of objects in households, toilets, public places, and transportation vehicles; and disinfecting the excreta and environment of patients in medical facilities to prevent water and food contamination from patients’ stool samples.

“At 16.32 24/02/2020 I ordered a Mango and passion fruit cooler/ smoothie.
It was slopped into a glass and was melting everywhere. I was really thirsty but can't drink these fast as I get really bad brain freeze. My husband arrived a few minutes later. I started to feel unwell... and said I was going to go straight home, he had a prior engagement so went to that. By the time I got home my stomach had swelled up and I was in agony. When my husband got home I was near to tears with pain and said I felt really sick. I was in bed..he brought me a bowl and towel..5 minutes later I realised I was going to be sick and rushed with the bowl to the bathroom.i was sick 6 times in quick succession. My stomach was agony.the liquid as that is all that came up..was mango orange colour and burnt my throat. The worse thing for me is that I had stomach surgery 4 years ago and I was upset that I would have to go to hospital. It's been an 1 and a half since I was sick. My stomach is tender to touch but not griping pain now. I wonder if the mix was out of date as it's more a summer drink. I didn't know who to report it to then saw this site.i want to make sure no one else has it. I won't be drinking here again. ”

“Yesterday 17 Feb (Tuesday) around 7.30pm, we got 4ppl went to your restaurant to eat dinner, we ordered plenty of sushi and other dishes. Your sushi is terrible, tasteless, especially salmon sushi and egg mayo, not fresh, I suspected this is the cause that one of my friend got food... poisoning after eat your sushi, vomit and diarrhea since yesterday night, another friend not feeling right after eating your food. I stomachache since yesterday until this morning only recover after I went the toilet. We pay to eat and enjoy your fresh and quality dishes, not food that losing freshness and tasteless. Is it right for a restaurant to serve such awful dishes for a customer especially raw food that can bring a lot of issue after eating if the food losing freshness? Can you bear the responsibility if the customer don't feeling well and get life threatening cause by food poisoning after eating your food? How do your restaurant responsible for our illness after eating your food? ”
“Impossible Burger Ive had the Impossible Burger three times all from various locations and finally here. The severe lower abdominal pains were so sharp they woke me up in the middle of the night each time. This followed by painful, violent diarrhea. I didn't make the connection at first. The... second time I figured it may be the Impossible Burger, then finally, the last time, I was then positive it was indeed the Impossible burger. I am not a vegan or vegitarian and eat unhealthy fatty foods was too often. So I am use to the high fat content, but I will NEVER eat an Impossible Burger EVER again! ”
