Seafarers cannot be forced to accept vaccination, ICS warns

SEAFARERS cannot be compelled to be vaccinated against coronavirus even where states insist all crew members must be inoculated prior to making port calls

SEAFARERS cannot be compelled to be vaccinated against coronavirus even where states insist all crew members must be inoculated prior to making port calls, the International Chamber of Shipping says. The situation could put owners in the invidious position of having to cancel voyages rather than take on the legal, financial and reputational risks of being denied entry, the trade association added.  Natalie Shaw,  Director of Employment Affairs for the ICS is a speaker at our forthcoming Containing COVID-19: Containerisation’s Role in Global Vaccine Logistics online seminar on April 15 2021 – you can book your place and join us here.

Coronavirus in Chinese Ice Cream Raises New Alarm Over Infection via Food

As traces of Covid-19 are found in Chinese ice cream, questions are once more being asked about the risks of catching the disease from frozen food.

As traces of Covid-19 are found in Chinese ice cream, questions are once more being asked about the risks of catching the disease from frozen food.  Although the World Health Organisation has advised that the possibility of catching Covid-19 from frozen food is low, China has stepped up frozen food import inspections significantly since late 2020, after a truck driver was infected with the disease after handling pork imported from North America, according to Chinese authorities.

Such a scheme could see up to 300 lorries being fast-tracked outside Dover and Folkstone for the largest supermarkets only. Supermarkets are already reporting gaps on the shelves in fresh produce aisles whilst industry bodies have highlighted that the new Brexit agreement is ‘pretty much unworkable’, leaving the fresh food supply chain seriously at risk of disruption.
