Had a parcel from China a couple of weeks ago, wrapped up in that orangey-yellowy parcel tape they love. So I sprayed it liberally with neat alcohol before picking it up & depositing in washbasin, where I disected it with a scalpel & dosed the insides as I went. I discovered that the yellow pigmented-gluey stuff gets everywhere!!!
I'm amazed the parcel arrived at all, considering it was posted in the year 1 BC - Before Coronavirus ! 🤣
Even the most pessimistic/optimistic findings have a survival on surfaces for these viruses at only a few days. The only virus risk on that parcel would be on the outside from where an infected UK person had handled it.
