In April 2022, the Asian country had decided to temporarily suspend imports from three slaughterhouses from Brazil, saying it had identified the presence of nucleic acid from the coronavirus in the product.

In May, China again suspended imports of Brazilian beef, but this time it did not state why. Fávaro’s announcement means the end of this ban on the three slaughterhouses.
