Should I be worried about coronavirus from packages originating in China?

Should I be worried?

No, according to the US’s Center for Disease Control (CDC), “there is no evidence to support the transmission of COVID-19 associated with imported packages and mail and there have not been any cases of COVID-19 in the United States associated with imported goods”.

The CDC explains “because of poor survivability of coronaviruses on surfaces, there is likely no risk to very low risk of spread from products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient temperatures. Coronaviruses are generally spread most often by respiratory droplets.”

The WHO (World Health Organisation) has not recommended any restriction of trade to and from China. We will continue to monitor these guidelines and update our policies accordingly.
