Customs offices nationwide would halt the acceptance of import declarations for aquatic products manufactured by PT. Putri Indah, after an outer packing sample from a shipment of Indonesian frozen hairtail tested positive for coronavirus, said the General Administration of Customs in a statement.

The suspension will be effective for a week, according to the statement.
