India contests Cambodia’s claim of buffalo meat infected with COVID-19

India on Wednesday contested Cambodia’s claims that Indian buffalo meat was infected with COVID-19, saying it exports the meat only after getting COVID-free certification.

Cambodia earlier this week said three out of five containers of frozen buffalo meat imported from India tested positive for coronavirus.

India’s Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA), which comes under the Ministry of Commerce & Industries, said: “All the consignments of Indian buffalo meat are tested in accordance with international standards and sent only after COVID-19-free certification.”
