China goes into “wartime” lockdown mode after 6 new cases of coronavirus were discovered in Beijing and traced to 50 others. Meanwhile in US, 26,000 (!) new COVID-19 cases were discovered yesterday and parks, sidewalk restaurants were full of people enjoying summer weather!

Beijing’s latest coronavirus outbreak was linked to “imported” salmon. Just last week, Seattle-based American Seafoods confirmed that 92 crew from its American Dynasty fish processing ship had tested positive for COVID-19, nearly three-fourths of the 126 people onboard.

There have been other COVID-19 cases among seafood workers in Alaska, where thousands have traveled from out of state for the world's largest salmon fishery. Some called for canceling this year's season, but the state pushed ahead anyway (minimum quarantine was just five days).

American Seafoods' primary investor is New York-based private equity firm Bregal Partners. It's one of the biggest players in the billion-dollar fishery for Alaska pollock, which goes into products like McDonald's Filet-O-Fish. Their testing missed many COVID-19 infected workers.
