    Coronavirus - anyone getting worried?

    Anyone getting worried about this Coronavirus? I’m not too concerned here in SWFL because we’re not a major population center but I was just reading that the virus can live on surfaces for two weeks. We get a lot of stuff from China so it’s a little unnerving that that Amazon package at the door could be a biohazard.

    After being laid out for over a month, with the regular influenza, I'm convinced that the "Kung Foo Flu" would probably kill me.

    As long as I don't come in contact with people who have very recently returned from China, I'm confident that I am safe. I don't think that the virus can survive on exposed surfaces like packages, and it is transmitted by infected people.

    A few colleagues came back from their contracts early. The we’re working abroad. I haven’t needed to go over there in some time. I imagine the fear and anxiety is real, but stifled.

    I’m not worried about meeting anyone who just returned from China, I’m saying that the virus CAN live on surfaces for two weeks I’ve read. I wonder if there are container ships arriving with packages contaminated with live virus since they would have left China before all the intensive news coverage.

    I haven’t read about it’s endurance, but unless it’s skyfreight, not sure it would survive a sea can. I know for some products where foreign insects are a concern, the containers are treated with pesticides. I imagine decontaminants are being used or considered.

    This was interesting: looks like cremation is being performed on an industrial scale in Wuhan and Chongqing.

    One surprising threat happened in Hong Kong apartments, where DIY plumbing repairs created a condition that contaminated waste (with the Coronavirus) from one apartment several floors up also exposed people in the lower floors. Makes you think twice when using public facilities,

    Now I wonder if Formula 1 is going to be canceled in Singapore and maybe Japan.
