It Is Likely That The Corona Virus Is Spreading Through Goods Purchased Online From China
right now more crowded about the corona virus problem from China, if we order goods sent online from China, the possibility of the virus will spread through the goods? thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Corona virus is really grabbing the world's attention lately. This is none other than because it is different from other viruses, this corona virus can cause serious illness and until now no specific drug has been found. Not only that, there are already fatalities that cause this disease to sound even more frightening.
Regarding your question, this virus can indeed stick to the goods, cause people who touch it, and then hold the eyes, mouth or nose, can be infected with the virus. But so far, the method of transmission is more known to occur in a short span of time. For example, someone with a corona virus sneezes by covering his nose with his hand. Then, without washing his hands, he held the door handle. The virus is attached to the door handle and the next person who holds the door handle, can catch the virus if he then touches his eyes, nose or mouth. The problem is with your question, the distance traveled by the virus is far enough until finally it reaches you, while there is not enough research to find out how long the virus is outside the human body. So it could be that the virus is dead before the goods reach your hands.
So indeed, we have not been able to answer in detail your question. What is clear, the ban so far is only limited to not traveling to the area, not to not buy goods originating from the area. Even those who have been infected so far have a history of traveling, and no one has been recorded as contracting from just buying things online. Therefore, so far it can be said that buying goods online will not transmit the virus, although to be safe, it would be far better if you always cultivate hand washing, live a healthy lifestyle, and if there are complaints, consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
