Can I Get Sick Opening A Package from Overseas?

Can I Get Sick Opening A Package from Overseas?

According to the World Health Organization, it is safe to receive letters and packages from China.

From the previous analysis, they indicate that Coronaviruses do not survive long on objects such as packages and letters. With the time it takes to travel from overseas, the virus would no longer be a threat.

The US Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) posted on its website that there is no evidence to support the transmission of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) associated with imported goods, with no such cases in the United States so far.

“There is likely very low risk of spread from products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient temperatures, ” it said on its FAQ (frequently asked questions).
