Because of Corona, China suspends the import of meat from Brazil

The Chinese authorities suspended the import of beef from some Brazilian companies, after detecting cases of corona in Brazil.

The General Administration of Customs of China has suspended import imports from three Brazilian beef export companies for a week.

The Brazilian newspaper Valor Economico, quoting a statement sent to the Brazilian embassy in Beijing, said that the decision will take effect from today, Saturday.

The statement stated that technicians discovered the presence of DNA from the new Corona virus on the outer packaging of four batches of frozen products sent from these companies to China. These companies are JBS, Marvege and Naturafrig.

The companies did not immediately respond to requests for comment, but they will halt shipments to China in compliance with a health protocol signed by the two countries.

Saudi Arabia banned imports from 11 poultry factories in Brazil in May last year.

Brazil contributes about a quarter of what is being exported globally of beef, occupying the forefront in this regard. China is the largest importer of Brazilian beef in the world.
