Basically, they are mechanized and canned. The whole process requires sterile operations and seal packaging.In addition, during the production process, potato chips must be fried at high temperature, and viruses are difficult to survive in such an environment.

It takes a period of time to make potato chips from production and factory to consumers. The virus can survive and have the possibility of infectious human ability. "Ruan Guangfeng analyzed.
