Any parcels I receive I take out the back, put in free flowing wind and wipe down with hospital grade wipes and then proceed to enjoy the product... I've got a newborn so can't be too careful tbh...

But there are videos of wrapped bodies in the streets of China, not enough health care workers to keep up etc. Some parcels I've been waiting for have not been sent for weeks and are now cancelled... No replies for refunds either?

Australia has put another travel ban from China for another week or two.

Supposedly emissions in China have dropped 25% since this epidemic started.

Im not too sure but I heard that Japan's infection rate is increasing sharply too.

I've heard hot temperatures works better at killing a Virus then cold temperatures.

I have made several orders from China (and other ”nearby” countries Singapore, Vietnam). The orders have shipped so far and made it quickly to EU.

I work as an ID consultant and get quite a few COVID questions when on call (on the “Wuhan hotline”). As far as I know :lol: , I have yet to see a patient with COVID (so far none in my part of EU). I do not believe that you are at risk from getting corona from a package/surface that has been several days underway. However, my best advice is that you keep informed on the CDC website:

We are lucky in Finland because local post is that slow that all Corona's are dead when they arrive to destination :-)

We've had 5 or 6 cases on the Gold Coast at the Hospital my wife works at... Luckily she's home on maternity leave...

And yet all the tourism industry is worried about is money...

Crap. I just received a pair of Chi-Fi in ear monitors. I didn't even think about it, even though I'm well aware. Dang it ](*,). Opened up that package and stuck em right in my ears. Hopefully the virus can't survive that long trip.

I don' see virus can get over here by mail, otherwise all mail would be restricted, and you can start a biological war yourself, if you can ship stuff like that.
But I see less availability of tackle made in China and even made in Japan, until good economical depression will play own role.

The virus cannot survive outside of a body too long. I'm not worried about a package which takes a couple of weeks to arrive.

Also some orders are shipping without problems, some are not shipping at all. This is my experience, it is all based on location I guess.
