COVID-19 is having a far-reaching negative impact on global economic and social development. One of the challenges arising from the pandemic is ensuring food security, especially with respect to cold chain food. Given the current situation of high contagion and large numbers of infected people, the perspective briefed emergency management measures of cold chain food, compared the development of accurate and rapid detection methods of COVID-19 and hazards in foods. In addition, we proposed three-dimensional-printing of foods as a promising candidate for ensuring food security during the current pandemic because it uses locally-obtained raw materials and does not need long-distance cold chain transportation.
