According to a statement from Customs and Border Protection (CBP), officers discovered “six plastic bags containing various vials, while conducting an enforcement examination of a parcel manifested as ‘purified water vials’ with a declared value of $196.81.”
After examining the shipment, the CBP found “vials filled with a white liquid and labelled ‘Corona Virus 2019nconv (COVID-19)’ and ‘Virus1 Test Kit’,” added the agency. The shipment – intercepted at the International Mail Facility at LAXS – has been turned over to the FDA for analysis.
The seizure comes after the US government acknowledged that the country does not have enough coronavirus test kits to meet its needs.
