Not just humans, fish, crabs undergo Covid tests in China, video goes viral

Hyderabad: Covid wreaked havoc for three years. To know whether this virus is infected or not, you have to get a Covid test done first! Fever, cough, cold and lethargy... no matter what kind of symptoms appear, people queue up for tests because they are afraid of Corona. 

But till now, these Corona tests were usually only conducted on humans. Recently, apart from humans, fish and crabs are also being tested for Corona. The incident took place in Xiamen of China.

In the coastal city of Xiamen in China, the authorities there are alarmed as the cases of Corona are increasing. After 40 people were infected with Covid in Xiamen, the government ordered tests for five million people in the city. But not just for humans, officials have decided to conduct Covid tests for some types of marine life as well.

Recently, notices have been issued to conduct Covid tests for the fish and aquatic animals brought with them when the fishermen, who went fishing in the sea, come back. As a result, the surviving fish and crabs were tested for Covid.

South China Morning Post has posted a video related to this on Twitter. In this, medical officers wearing PPE kits are taking swabs from aquatic animals like fish and crabs and doing Covid tests. This video has gone viral on social media.
