COVID-19 And Parcel Handling
Q: Is it possible to contact coronavirus by handling parcels?
A: The World Health Organisation states that it is safe to handle parcels. The likelihood of an infected person contaminating commercial goods is low and the risk of catching the virus the causes COVID-19 from a package that has been moved, travelled, and exposed to different conditions and temperatures, is also low.
The WHO has also said that, based on current knowledge, COVID-19 is spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth, which are spread when an infected person coughs or exhales. People with the highest risk of infection are those with direct contact with another infected person.
