Coronavirus has been discovered by Authorities on
in China on the packaging of imported frozen seafood that arrived from the port city of Dalian.
Dalian is a major port in the northeastern province of Liaoning ,which recently battled a surge of cases.
The virus was found on the outer packaging of frozen seafood which was bought by three companies in Yantai, a port city in eastern Shandong province.
According to the Yantai city government, the seafood was from an imported shipment that landed at Dalian.
They however did not say where it originated.
Back in july, the virus was found on a package of shrimps from Ecuador, by customs officers in Dalian, a major port in the northeastern province of Liaoning.
This led to the suspension of imports from three Ecuadorean shrimp producers.
The novel coronavirus is believed to have emerged in a market that sold seafood and wildlife in the central Chinese city of Wuhan late last year.
It has since spread around the world, with some new cases brought back into China from returning travellers.
