ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — News10NBC has gotten a lot of questions about the coronavirus, including if the virus can survive on a shipped package.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the virus’s ability to survive on surfaces, in general, is low. 

Now take into account the days or weeks a package could take to get to its destination.

The CDC says the chance it would spread on packages is very low.
