What you need to know about coronavirus and food
It is very unlikely that you can catch coronavirus (COVID-19) from food.
Cooking thoroughly will kill the virus.
COVID-19 is a respiratory illness. It is not known to be transmitted by exposure to food or food packaging.
Everyone should wash their hands regularly with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds, to reduce the risk of illness.
It is especially important to wash hands before handling food or eating.
