As you may know, we are still in the Chinese New Year holiday and it seems to be unfortunately a bit longer one this time. You probably heard from the news already about the latest development of the coronavirus from Wuhan. The whole country is fighting against this battle and as an individual business, we also take all necessary measures to reduce our impact to minimal.
We do expect a certain level of shipment delay since that national holiday is officially extended by the government to reduce the opportunity of public-infection.
Therefore, our workers could not back to the production line as planned. The fact here is that we are not able to estimate how long it takes us to back to business. And due to the Spring Festival, at present, Our government has extended the Spring Festival holiday to February 2, Beijing time.
But with the gradual resumption of logistics enterprises, logistics will gradually recover after the Spring Festival holiday in most areas, some areas such as Hubei province, logistics recovery is relatively slow
We do extra on sterilizing. 2:54 p.m. ET, January 27, 2020, Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said there was no evidence the new coronavirus could be transmitted through imported goods, CNN reported.
Messonier reiterated that the immediate risk to the American public is low at this point.
CNN said Messonier’s comments allayed concerns that the virus could be transmitted via packages sent from China. Coronaviruses like SARS and MERS tend to have poor survivability, and there’s “very low if any risk” that a product shipped at ambient temperatures for days or weeks could not spread such a virus.
Although it is known that viruses couldn’t likely survive in the manufacturing and transportation process, we do understand the public concern from a perception perspective.
BEIJING, Jan. 31 (Xinhua) — The World Health Organization (WHO) announced that the novel coronavirus outbreak has become a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC).
PHEIC does not mean panic. It is a time calling for enhanced international preparedness and greater confidence. It is based on this confidence that the WHO does not recommend overreactions such as trade and travel restrictions. As long as the international community stands together, with scientific prevention and cures, and precise policies, the epidemic is preventable, controllable and curable.
“China’s performance received compliments from all over the world, which, as WHO’s current director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said, has set a new standard for countries around the world in epidemic prevention and control,” the former WHO chief said.
Facing an extraordinary challenge posed by the outbreak, we need extraordinary confidence. Although it’s a hard period for our Chinese people, we believe that we can overcome this battle. Because we believe we can make it!
