After traces of coronavirus were discovered on a salmon cutting board used at a Beijing food market, Chinese authorities are now insisting on a video inspection of three Norwegian salmon plants.

The Norwegian Food Authority was informed through the Norwegian Embassy in Beijing that Chinese authorities want to conduct video inspections of facilities at Sekkingstand, Vikingfjord and Nova Sea on Friday.
