It is well known that some ways to remove coronavirus from food are:
- washing/cleaning it carefully;
- heating it (e.g. in oven, microwave or a saucepan), at least 70 degrees for at least 5 minutes;
- waiting for some hours/days for the virus to decompose by itself.
But none of these strategies apply to ice cream. In particular, the first two strategies are impossible because you cannot wash or cook ice cream. And the last one cannot be used because it would melt. Plus, if you wait keeping the ice cream in the freezer for hours/days, the virus may actually survive, because it survives very easily at very low temperatures (even for years).
So I was wondering, is there any other way (perhaps suggested by some experts, in that case please provide a link) for food disinfection which may work even on ice cream? Or the only way to stay safe is just avoiding eating it?
