We’ve received a number of questions about the transmission of coronavirus between international trade. Here are what we know at present:
1) How does the virus spread?
The new coronavirus spreads primarily through contact with an infected person through respiratory droplets generated when a person coughs or sneezes, or through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose. That means the virus can be transmitted from person to person, especially after close contact with an infected patient, for example, in a household workplace, or health care center.
2) Shall we catch the virus through the package from infection area?
People receiving packages are not at risk of contracting the new coronavirus. From experience with other similar viruses, we know that these types of viruses don’t survive long on objects, such as letters or packages. But it is still not known how long the virus survives on surfaces, although preliminary information suggests the virus may survive a few hours or more. Simple disinfectants can kill the virus making it no longer possible to infect people.
3) How to response for the influence of coronavirus
Factory production of goods is expected to be severely delayed in China as workers will not be returning to work until much later.
In addition, due to the risks of catch the coronavirus, it’s inconvenient to go to China for business, and it’s also hard for China suppliers to go aboard. Even some of the famous exhibitions in China may have to be canceled. The face to face business communication is not allowed for the infection situation recently.
But doing business online is the safer and convenient option for both suppliers and buyers.
