Is it safe to handle food or packages mailed from disease affected area?

There is no evidence supporting that coronavirus is transmitted via food or food packaging, according to the Food and Drug Administration. Nor is there any indication that people have contracted coronavirus from consuming food, said food-safety expert Benjamin Chapman, a professor at North Carolina State University. Like other viruses, it is possible that the virus that causes COVID-19 can survive on surfaces of objects. Therefore, following good hygiene practices are critical to maintaining your health.
