Chinese authorities have found traces of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) on the packaging of imported frozen seafood that arrived from the port city of Dalian for the second time since July, news agency Reuters reported.

The virus was found on the outer packaging of frozen seafood bought by three companies in Yantai, a port city in eastern Shandong province.

In a statement, the Yantai city government said the package was from an imported shipment that landed at Dalian but did not say where it originated.

In July, customs officers in Dalian had found COVID-19 in the packaging of frozen shrimps imported from Ecuador. China had then suspended imports from three Ecuadorean shrimp producers.

Some of the seafood that the three Yantai companies bought had been processed for export, while the rest had been kept in cold storage and has not entered the market, said Yantai government in a statement.

The city government, however, declined to elaborate if any package has been exported yet.

The novel coronavirus is believed to have emerged in a wet market that sold seafood and wildlife in the central Chinese city of Wuhan late last year.
