When getting packages shipped from China you are not at risk for Covid-19 since the COVID-19 Virus cannot live on surfaces or live through the shipping process from China to the USA.

If you're worried however you can spray the package you get with disinfectant.

I still spray any packages I receive when ordering online with some spray disinfectant and touch it with gloves just in case someone who was handling the package had Covid-19.

But studies have shown and health professionals said that you are at no or low risk for COVID-19 from a package shipping from China or packages from anywhere.

The coronavirus disease and the flu are both respiratory illnesses that affect your respiratory system.

But the coronavirus disease is much more severe than the flu.

Some people say that coronavirus disease is just like the flu but it really is not.

We do need to take the coronavirus disease more seriously than some people are taking it and if we want to get the USA economy going again then we need to wear the masks and continue with social distancing.

Not all cases of coronavirus disease are deadly if you are healthy otherwise but it still can lead to death if you're not careful.

The symptoms of the coronavirus disease are similar to the flu and most people do recover from the coronavirus disease within a few weeks of getting it.

However if you already have breathing problems or other health issues then the coronavirus disease can lead to death.

We may not be out of this coronavirus disease pandemic until at least the year 2022 or even the year 2024.

It's hard to say because this is a new virus going around and they are still working on vaccines for the coronavirus disease.
