The US Postal Service is claiming mail is safe and "there is currently no evidence that COVID-19 can spread through the mail" even though a study from US researchers indicated the virus can live on plastic for 3 days and cardboard for over 24 hours.
The media is reporting their claims without proper context or skepticism.
From CBS News, "Can the coronavirus spread through the mail?":
Reports of postal workers testing positive for the novel coronavirus have raised concerns that the pathogen could live on letters and packages, potentially exposing people to infection just from opening their mail or Amazon packages. The U.S Postal Service's response: Don't worry about it.If you're sheltering in place as you should be, getting the virus from the mail is just about the only risk you face.
A U.S. study, which was just expanded on, found the coronavirus can potentially live on plastic for 72 hours and cardboard for over 24 hours:
The public should be informed of this risk, especially considering it's elderly people who get the most mail.
Drop your mail into a cardboard box, wait at least 24 hours before opening it and wash your hands after touching it.
