Abstract

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic caused by the spread of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has resulted in significant social disruptions and human costs. The predominant transmission routes are conjectured to be inhalation of airborne virus and contact with fomites on shared surfaces. Recently, COVID-19 infection clusters have been reported related to the fresh meat and seafood industry in different countries which caused concerns about the foodborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2 to the human population.
