Rumor: Rice grown in Hubei province, the epicenter of the novel coronavirus outbreak, may carry the virus, and people shouldn't eat the rice produced there.

Fact:

Rice is not a host for virus, and the virus cannot replicate and proliferate on a rice grain. And it loses vitality during the storage of rice, according to the platform for alerting the public about online rumors operated by the Cyberspace Administration of China.
