Are packages from coronavirus-hit China safe to handle

Posted on 10th Feb 2020 @ 1:28 PM

As the deadly coronavirus continues to spread across the world, you may be wondering: Do imported goods from China pose a health risk?

It’s unlikely the virus will survive the journey from China to your front door.

“The virus on materials they ordered would not survive such a trip. Outside the body, we believe this virus only survives on an object minutes to an hour or so, not the days it takes your goods to travel the globe,”  Patricia A. Stinchfield, vice president of the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID), told Fox News in an email. “As always after handling things, wash your hands before touching your eyes, nose or mouth.”

As being suggested, we recommend you to wash your hands before touching your eyes, nose and mouth after taking our parcels posted from China.

Thanks for your concern and understanding.
