JINAN, Dec. 6 (Xinhua) -- Three imported frozen beef packaging samples tested positive for the novel coronavirus in Juye County, east China's Shandong Province, local health authorities said Sunday.

According to the county's epidemic prevention and control headquarters, the samples were taken from three batches of frozen beef imported from Argentina.
