A new virus has emerged from Wuhan City in China. In late December 2019, WHO was alerted to several cases of pneumonia in Wuhan City, Hubei Province of China. The Chinese authorities confirmed that they had identified a new virus, known as coronavirus.
For most December is the busiest season of the year. High volumes of food is prepared, served and eaten. This means that there are natural risks that increase as a result of the higher volumes. Meaning we need to know how to manage food poisoning risks over the festive season.
On World Hepatitis Day, 28 July, people from across the world took action to raise awareness to find the “missing millions”. At HygieneFoodSafety.org we are adding to this call to highlight the risk of food poisoning through Hepatitis A, a food virus that infects millions worldwide.
The theme of this year’s inaugural World Food Safety Day invites us all to recognise that food safety is everyone’s business, whether at home, restaurants or food factories.
