Coronavirus is spread by fish.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stated that the COVID-19 disease does not spread through chicken, mutton or fish.

The CDC report stated that the virus is transmitted predominantly through human to human interaction. While there is no evidence that food can spread the virus that causes COVID-19, there are other important considerations for bulk purchasing. It added that producers involved in meat production are facing loss because of rumors saying coronavirus is spreading in poultry, fish, and meat.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19, including symptoms, prevention, and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organisation or your national healthcare authority.
