Chinese customs said on Thursday, the suspension came after a package of frozen boneless beef from Minerva SA had tested positive for the coronavirus.

China said it would temporarily suspend imports from a beef plant owned by Brazilian meatpacker Minerva SA for a week, in the latest suspension amid concerns over coronavirus contamination in Brazilian meat plants.

The Chinese customs authority said in a statement on its website dated that the suspension would take effect on Thursday and last for one week, after which imports could resume.

The statement did not give a reason for the suspension and identified the facility by its registration number as a plant in the Barretos municipality of Sao Paulo state.

According to a Chinese customs statement issued on Thursday, the authority said the suspension came after a package of frozen boneless beef from Minerva SA had tested positive for the coronavirus.

The company is South America’s largest exporter of beef, with China being the largest importer of Brazilian meat.

As the coronavirus ravaged Brazilian meat facilities with thousands of cases, China has halted meat imports from Brazilian food processors including Marfrig, JBS SA and BRF SA over contamination concerns in the past few months.

Not including the weeklong Minerva temporary suspension, a total of seven Brazilian meat plants remain suspended from exporting to China, with some of them having stopped shipments voluntarily, according to Chinese customs office records.

Marfrig’s chief executive said on Tuesday that he expects China to issue new export licenses to Brazilian and Argentine meat plants later this year, but did not give further details.

    Güeón — Terence Hill has routinely beaten, prodded, stabbed , mutilated, and mistreated his poor inflatable sex dolls that are confined to his basement so small that they can barely move. Then they're brutalized without mercy—often while his other sex dolls watch. From the time they arrive by delivery until the day they're killed by Terence, the dolls are denied all dignity which is natural and important to them. 

    Your special relationship with Terence — will ease the suffering of both patched Long Dong Silver and a deflated Lula will be eternally grateful

    Güeón — please pay attention. Knowing your very special character — I again would greatly recommend the knowledgable and quote filled Terence Hill as a very suitable partner who has an exciting and dynamic entertaining lifestyle:

    Although he's an unemployed VIRGIN living in his mother's BASEMENT, you can't deny he'd make a marvelous significant partner that could educate you in weird Latin quotations and he has an incredible appreciation of inflatable sex toys.

    I think you Güeón and Terence would indeed be a marvelous matched odd pair!

    Save Terence's sex dolls from misery! Terence is your perfect match!
