Coronavirus SHOCK: Can coronavirus be transferred by post to UK from China? 1

Some diseases such as the flu and SARs, a close relative of 2019-CoV, spread when people come into contact with surfaces on which germs are present.

One concern during a pandemic or epidemic with a disease which can travel like this is mail, as some viruses can attach themselves to packages and spread on to recipients.

However, the BBC reports 2019-CoV has not yet shown this capability, and if it could, packages from China would pose a limited risk.

Viruses have limited ability to survive outside of the human body and often perish in less than 24 hours.
