Viruses survive freezing

Researchers studying viruses similar to COVID-19 have found they can survive freezing temperatures in beef, pork, fish and chicken, but are less likely to survive in refrigeration.

They say the results point to the need to adhere to sustained and rigorous food safety protocols in meat-processing facilities.

Their trials found virus survival in frozen meats and fish for up to 30 days.
