The coronavirus spreads from person to person, and it is always important to practice good hygiene when handling food and its packaging to prevent foodborne illnesses. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has stated that the nutrients from seafood, among other foods, can help cope with pandemic-related stress.
