beef 04A total of 102 cases out of all 311 confirmed cases in Beijing were related to Xinfadi's beef and lamb market, thus the area was labelled by health experts as extremely high risk with another 14-day quarantine being imposed on people who are connected to this specially designated area.
 

This sparked concern from consumers over whether lamb and beef, like salmon, will become the next "inedible meat."
 

All 25 new cases found on Friday and Saturday are from people under collective quarantine, said Chu Junwei, deputy head of Beijing's Fengtai district, where Xinfadi is located. Dai said that 23 cases found at the MGM International Hotel are related to the beef and lamb section at Xinfadi market.

beef 02As of Sunday, a total of 102 people confirmed infected with coronavirus are from this section, propelling health experts to label this area as extremely high risk, and decided to extend the lockdown period for quarantined persons who were connected with the beef and lamb market section, to 28 days, said Dai.
 

Those persons were previously required to undergo a 14-day quarantine.
 

Beijing's Fengtai district also vowed to conduct both nucleic acid tests and serum antibody tests on people in collective quarantine.
 

This decision soon sparked concern among local residents on whether beef and lamb are still edible. "Is the virus from salmon, beef or lamb? More details are needed," a Sina Weibo user urged.
 

"Like salmon, the beef and lamb section at Xinfadi market has welcomed a large number of people on a daily basis, the possibility of the virus being connected to such meats exists. But they are safe as long as consumers don't eat them raw," said Yang Zhanqiu, a deputy director of the pathogen biology department at Wuhan University.
 

新发地牛羊肉大楼相关人员成“极高风险人群”

北京市丰台区委副书记、区政府代区长初军威表示,从近期确诊病例的情况看,丰台区病例主要发现在集中隔离点。特别是26日、27日丰台区新增的25例确诊病例均来源于集中隔离点,其中美高美酒店集中隔离点确诊23例。通过对美高美酒店病例的溯源分析,病例来源全部为新发地牛羊肉综合大楼地下一层的从业人员。截至目前,在筛查病例中,牛羊肉综合大楼地下一层从业人员确诊102例,占丰台确诊病例的48.11%。针对上述情况,丰台区正在组织对集中隔离点人员进行全覆盖核酸和血清抗体检测。
 

经专家评估,牛羊肉综合大楼相关人员为疫情极高风险人群。本着对人民群众身体健康安全负责的态度,基于疫情防控的工作需要,现决定对牛羊肉综合大楼相关集中隔离人员在原来14天的基础上再延长集中医学观察14天。
