Default Scared to buy items from China?

Are you scared to buy stuff from China because you don't want to contract the Corona virus ? What's your thoughts?

Anyone else remembers Ebola? Does anyone talk about it now lol? If you are still worried you can always buy a Class III Biological Safety Cabinets

And open your package inside it.

The corona virus needs a body to stay alive, outside the body it will not survive a day.

This article suggests that shipping may possibly resume next week, but nobody knows for sure...

I am glad I run Xray ( Of course i don't know where they have there parts made) but it makes me feel safe.

And i don't agree with train of thought that this will be over in a week. If you trust that China is accurately reporting the cases and number of deaths I will ge looking for you an the Buyer/Seller dispute and discussion forum.I hate to not trust my fellow man but been burned too many times.

its gonna be interesting to see the effect on supply and costs once china gets back to normal, kinda like when computer ram and storage was skyrocketing at retail, huge industrial sectors are getting thrown way off being shut down, from r/c to automotive... biggest hit is gonna be the tech sector, all those smc components and such, crazy how much raw material and component industry is solely in china

Itís really hurting small businesses. My local Chinese restaurants are empty, with no customers to be found. Very sad.

I had Hunan beef for dinner last night.
