    BBTS is the only one to supposedly report a delay.

    They're already in the Target supply chain.

    Don’t forget about SARS. Sorry I didn’t mean to shout.

    Although not China Post, just had record delivery of a HK Post item. Package still in HK on the 28th and cleared US customs on the 29th.

    There's this thing called international travel, though.

    Yeah, this is what I came here to say. Viruses and pathogens flourish in these conditions. It’s why prior to fist contact, North America never had a massive epidemic like Europe did. There wasn’t tons of people living in close proximity to each-other, any virus outbreaks burned though their tribe of origin before they could reach epidemic levels.

    Quarantine is also key to stopping viruses. And basic hygiene, and vaccines, and just good common sense.

    For anyone worried about shipments from China, the virus is not going to survive transit if it somehow hitches a ride. Viruses breed by infecting other cells. If it's stored in a cardboard box for over a week it's not going to propagate before it dies. Just wash your hands regularly if you're still worried.
