For fruit and vegetables, careful washing with water is sufficient to remove any trace of the virus.
You can also scrub them or add a splash of white vinegar to the water.
It is best to peel fruit whenever possible.
In any case, you should not under any circumstances use bleach to wash your fruit and vegetables.
Finally, since the coronavirus is sensitive to heat, the best way to protect yourself is to cook vegetables: exposure to heat of 63°C for four minutes will reduce the contamination of a food product by a factor of 10,000.
