Is Shipping Goods From Abroad Carrying A Corona Virus?
Slmt mlm. My name is fitri from tangerang, I want to ask, why do I buy accessories from overseas, through an online application. Is that dangerous, right?
Good morning Fitri, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern. The spread of the corona virus indeed requires us to be more vigilant, especially with this virus being so easy to move from one person to another.
Regarding your question, the age of this virus when it is on the item is not long, so it should be safe from the virus even if the goods come from countries that have contracted the corona virus. Especially when put in a stuffy and hot trunk, then its age will be even shorter.
However, even though the possibility of corona virus to be able to survive on the item is small, there is no guarantee that the virus is not in the packaging. Say for example one of the customs workers or goods senders in Indonesia has the corona virus but shows no symptoms, the virus can still reach you. That is why the suggestion is to always wash your hands regularly even if you are not in the immediate vicinity of the sufferer, because we cannot know the exact position of the virus.
In addition to washing hands regularly, you also still need to maintain health by exercising regularly, eating fruits and vegetables, getting enough rest, and avoiding pollution and smoking. So, hopefully answering your question.
