Can I get coronavirus from a package delivered from China?
I'll be ordering from a local website similar to Amazon. The page of the item says it will be shipped from overseas. Most likely it will come from China. Can I get coronavirus from a package delivered from China?

yes, the virus can survive up to 28 days or almost a month.

You're far more likely to get the flu from the delivery person.

No, you can't get coronavirus from a parcel.
"It's also safe to receive packages and letters from China.
The virus is unlikely to survive for long on these kind of surfaces, and that includes objects like cups and door handles.
You have to be in close contact with an infected person - within two metres for 15 minutes or more - to be at risk."Source(s): https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-51386894

Of course not. I got an Amazon package, shipped from China, about a week ago, and haven't sneezed even once... still alive... 😉
Virus transmission is from animals to people and people to people.
Relax, and enjoy your Chinese thingy! 🙂

"Most likely it will come from China". How useless is this website you're using that it doesn't even tell you where things are coming from?

Dumbest post all day. You think a virus can survive for hours or days on a cold hard surface??????

Mate, you get the coronovirus from people, not from a package. The virus is dead by the time the package gets to you
