Interesting - virus detected on a cutting board used for imported salmon. Seems this is a case of contamination/transmission in a crowded market. Maybe that's what happened in Wuhan early on? How did that happen? And do we have to worry about our food?

Beijing health authorities said they had detected the virus on a cutting board that belonged to a vendor in the market who sold imported salmon. The city has ordered citywide safety inspections focused on fresh and frozen meat, poultry and fish in supermarkets, warehouses and catering services.

Beijing ....

Forgive me if I'm wrong......

But this is important ....

I think......

Thanks, T!  Probably fecal/oral transmission, which hasn't been adequately discussed.  

“Asymptomatic children and adults may be shedding infectious virus and they could transmit it. This is another reason to emphasize good personal hygiene,” says Mary Estes at Baylor College of Medicine, Texas, who was not involved in these studies. “Physicians and caretakers of potentially-infected children need to be aware that stools might be infectious,” adds Estes. The results are preliminary and further research is needed. “We are now assembling a much larger cohort to confirm our results and will test more patients to confirm faecal–oral transmission,” says Zhang.
