Corona infection that is currently rife is called COVID-19. This disease attacks the respiratory system with the main symptoms of fever, coughing, and shortness of breath. Spread occurs through direct contamination with sufferers such as droplets when coughing or indirectly through the surface of objects that already contain droplets of infected people. There is no evidence of spread through food because viruses need animals and humans to grow and develop. But the cleanliness and hygiene of food and cutlery used is of course very important to note and note also that the food you eat is perfectly cooked. Washing hands before and after eating or touching the surface of an object is important to do.
At present the ways that you can do to prevent being infected with this virus are:
Eat healthy and nutritious foods, multiply fruits and vegetables
Drink enough water
Rest and exercise routine
Avoid to crowded places
Avoid traveling outside the area / abroad
Wash your hands with soap
So, I hope to answer your question
