Can you drink refrigerated water and drinks during this coronavirus pandemic?

Can infected apple and grapes cause of corona virus?

Fruits cannot be infected by the virus . They may harbour the virus for a few hours if someone infected has coughed or sneezed on the fruit . Therefore you should rinse fruits with running water before eating them, which will help remove 90-99 per cent of any contamination. Even fruits like banana or orange with a peel must be washed before consuming them.

Can the virus that causes COVID-19 to be spread through food, including refrigerated or frozen food?

Coronaviruses are generally thought to be spread from person-to-person through respiratory droplets. Currently, there is no evidence to support the spread of COVID-19 linked with food. Before preparing or eating food it is essential to always wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds for general food safety. Throughout the day wash your hands after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing, or going to the bathroom.

It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

In general, because of poor survivability of these coronaviruses on surfaces, there is likely very low risk of spread from food products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient, refrigerated, or frozen temperatures. (Source: CDC)
