Impact of Corona Virus on Beef Export

Officials say Argentina's beef exports have fallen by a third due to the fears that the coronavirus will spread rapidly.

China was leading the world in beef buyers from Argentina. In this case, China's harbor has been severely restricted due to the virus being infected.

Beef imports have been affected by the diversion of many cargo vessels to other countries. As a result, beef sales have declined by 31 thousand tonnes in the last nine months, according to Mario Ravettino, head of the Export Department of Argentina.
