When fruit comes from Peru ,how many viruses or bacteria

This answer was rated:

Hi. when fruit comes from Peru ,how many viruses or bacteria survive the journey?

I can appreciate your concern.

Most, but not all, bacteria and viruses get killed during the deep freeze used during transportation.

A very low amount may survive by going into something like a hibernation state.

But bacteria and viruses spread through fruits is not a concern provided proper washing of the fruits is done - this is sufficient to maintain health.

Take care - hope this advise helps you and keeps you safe.
