From what I read online, 2 years ago a viral research center (another name for biological warfare development?) was built in the now infected Chinese city of Wuhan. It sounds like RL version of those apocalyptic TV series.

Can mail be contagious? Here's an article about it:

The philatelic question: The next time you receive a package with stamps that were licked in China, will you soak them off?

My daughter spent a year in Wuhan.

While I would not lick her (or vice versa), we will continue to steal food off of each other's plates.

Cheers,

I spent several days in Wuhan in July - would not wish it on my worst enemy - the heat was terrible and I live in the Central Valley of California. It is a very nice city, but I sweated to death when outdoors.

I just saw:
"The #coronavirus can survive for five days maximum on smooth surfaces under suitable circumstances: experts from China's Health Commission."
How lucky we are that packages from China never arrive that fast.
