This is actually not true, the warmer weathers helps the virus weaken fast, and it’s easier to eliminate.
Besides, there are a few confirmed cases in several countries of the african continent, but the epidemic has not progressed as much as in other countries like china and around Europe.
Thanks to some experiments and analysis made, we know that this type of virus can’t actually survive a lot of time in letters or packages.
So actually getting a package from other country that is infected doesn’t necessarily means you will get the virus yourself.
There are no easy tests that in a matter of minutes can actually tell you if you have or not the virus.
The only official test is the analysis known as PCR. In our country only public hospitals and some private health institutions have access to this type of laboratory tests.
