If it has leathery wings sticking out the sides, don't eat it.

China is desperately seeking to rewrite history again. The fact remains that China was well aware of the existence of this virus and failed to notify the rest of us or do anything to contain it for a considerable amount of time. In other words they made quite sure that it had spread outside their own borders before speaking up.

What, so the virus can survive being in a freezer? That seems highly unlikely....

Its very important to pinpoint the source of origin CHINA! who knows the source of origin is still producing the corona virus.

Well viruses are stored at -20C to -80C for future experiments.

The drying process used for the milk powder and why should kill any virus. Because virus need a living cell to reproduce, any virus that do survive heat drying will not reproduce in a bag of dried powder. After reconstituting the whey and milk powders are heated in a vat with other ingredients. Once mixed the hot ice cream mixture is subject to the Pasteurization process which should kill any virus present in original ingredients. It seems very low probability that any virus is coming into China with the imported ingredients. It seems higher probability that there is some means of contamination occurring locally.

And certain people blame China and not their own country’s leader despite the leader’s actions exacerbating the problem.

China trying to deflect the blame for the Wuhan virus. The truth is KNOWN : it originated in China and has killed millions of people. What about food hygiene in China? Look at their markets. The factory must have been operating in a filthy environment.

Weird how many people insist on living in the past instead of moving forward.

Do you all want the US to bomb China? Engage in a trade war? What do you people think is an appropriate response to China?

The ingredients included New Zealand milk powder and whey powder from Ukraine, the government said.

To be precise and fair, the Chinese government needs to indicate that other major ingredients, such as water, air, sugar, egg, vanilla essence, and sweetened condensed milk together with workers all come from China.

I thought the reason ice cream is one of the only foods that doesn't require a use-by date is because bacteria can't grow at the temperatures needed for ice cream to freeze. Thought that would cover viruses too but I stand corrected!

Funny how people who claim to stand for human rights are pro-big government and pro-government in control of everything and pro-China.

What. does Covid taste like?

The entire world knows Covid began in the town of Wuhan (China) in 2019, but China is clearly in denial. China claims the coronavirus came from abroad in China and did not originate from China. Now the problem of corona extract from ice cream came from Tanjian city of China, now the CCP dictator is going to do some pad research and then say it came from New Zealand and Ukraine because milk powder came from New Zealand to make ice cream and Whey Powder came from Ukraine.

Good drivers can drive bad cars well. Bad drivers, well they just drive everything badly.

Trump was a very bad driver in a very good car who had lots of crashes and lost his license. Then nuked the test centre.

Not my best analogy I'll admit.
