Now, according to a study by Forbes, The COVID-19 virus can survive on frozen meat for up to 3 weeks. What's it take to kill this thing?

The study done by Forbes put the COVID virus on pieces of pork, fish and chicken. 3 weeks later scientists found the virus was still alive and well on on the meat. Not only alive but still infectious.

According to Forbes contributor Bruce Lee, no not that Bruce Lee. Covid wouldn't mess with him. Anyway, Lee was quoted  “finding genetic material on the surface of food is not the same as finding live replicating virus. This distinction is important because viruses are quite different than bacteria, they cannot survive on their own without a live host. Besides, having even enough virus is even more crucial to risk of infection. As a result, the potential for infectivity possessing a high enough viral load which is then capable of transmission to a person—after eating the particular food is quite remote.”

Just one more thing to keep your guard up against. Of course, continue to practice all the other safety measures like washing your hands often for a minimum of 20 seconds or 2 verses of "Yankee Doodle Dandy", keep practicing social distancing and wear your face mask when out in public.
