Chinese ice cream tests positive for COVID-19

Jan 17 2021 Share

An ice cream in China made headlines worldwide after testing positive in three COVID-19 sample tests.

The virologist went on to state that while unacceptable and an obvious cause for concern, it is the result of an issue with the production plant and the sub-zero temperatures and fat content of the ice cream may have been detrimental to the virus.
