Hello Wildanatus,

Thank you for the question.

Coronavirus is transmitted through droplets or splashes of saliva, sneezing, or coughing up phlegm, and the virus can survive on various surfaces in a matter of hours to days, depending on the type of surface. In general, viruses can last for a long, humid, moderate temperature, with little wind, and hard surfaces. In connection with shipping goods, goods sent through courier services will experience changes in environmental conditions, such as changes in temperature, changes in humidity, which makes the virus does not last long on the surface of the goods.

Thus, the possibility of covid-19 positive people transmitting the virus to the surface of goods that will be sent and will be exposed to different surroundings during this 2-day period, is very small. However, even though the possibility is very low, if you want to take precautionary measures to be more careful, you can clean the surface of the item with a liquid containing 62-71% ethanol, or 0.5% hydrogen peroxide.

Hopefully this information can help.

Regards.
