Have no idea. But to be safe make sure you burn it with fire before touching

Depends on the worker....
If he is sick maybe is a chance to get this virus if he can 'survive' for such a long time
till you will get your package in hand.

If the incubation time is 2 weeks then....

I think will be a good ideea to handle a package with one time use gloves
and disinfect your order before use anything you can touch or use, just for precautions.

Also an UV lamp will be very useful to disinfect, I already set my gear.
I've bought an UV lamp (PL-S 9 W 2P UV-C G23, Philips), as chamber I am using a cardboard box.
I put anything what's coming from China in the box and I let the UV light on for 2 minutes.
You can buy any UV lamp with UV-C light, will be efficient and it's cheap (6€]

Be very careful with the UV lamp, without eye protection
you can have irritations and/or Pink Eye (Conjunctivitis).
That's why I am using a cardboard box, I put what I need to disinfect inside and close the lid, after that I turn on the UV Light and let the objects sit there for 2 minutes.
I don't have to look inside when the light is on.

Better safe than sorry.

Packages are safe to handle.

This virus doesn't survive for long without a host (human or animal).
And it is only transmitted through close human contact or through direct contact with infected animals.

Packages will be safe. Not sure how quickly shipping will get out if everything is closed down though.
The more you study the more you know... the more you know the more you forget. The more you forget the less you know... so why study?

StilL not sure if they are underplaying or overplaying it.


We went though the SARs crisis 15 odd years ago here in Toronto. The paranoia was unreal. People were refusing to sit beside passengers on planes from Toronto.
😂

They are really playing it down here but then you look at the DailyMail in the UK and one might think its going to sweep the world and kill us all . 😛


Wuhan mayor says he expects another 1,000 coronavirus cases in the city as Beijing warns virus is MORE contagious than SARS amid fears of 90,000 cases in China alone

It's the real deal.
Check the reports, is speading all over the world, first was only one, then 2-3.
From 4 countries now are 9 countries...

This is not a joke and the Chinese govt anyway don't report the real situation there.

See the videos with people falling in the street from that virus:

Yeah. I have quite a few Chinese neighbours and one was just complaining to me yesterday morning that the government isn't telling the truth. He and his wife were booked to fly there next week for a wedding and aren't going.

Fear mongering media are overplaying it and local Chinese authorities have been underplaying it. Responsible medical professionals aren't doing either.
