According to media reports on November 17, according to media reports, in view of whether overseas packages can cause virus infection, Wu Zunyou, chief epidemiologist of the China Center for Disease Control and prevention, said that Haitao did have the risk of receiving virus contaminated packages. In order to reduce the risk, they can use alcohol wet cloth to wipe the outer package, wash hands after handling the packages, and pay attention to hand hygiene.
Wu Zunyou pointed out that special conditions are required for foreign articles to become virus carriers, and the transmission probability depends on the amount of pollution and the frequency of personnel contact. If the pollution is serious, the transmission probability is high, and the transmission probability is small if the pollution is not serious; if the contact frequency is high, the infection rate will be high if the contact frequency is high, and if it is once in a while, the probability will be small.
For express delivery personnel who come into contact with overseas parcels, Wu Zunyou said that they belong to the high-risk group of infection. In the process of operation, they must pay attention to wearing masks, pay attention to hand hygiene, and do nucleic acid testing regularly. The so-called regular detection should not be less than once a week.
