The virus on cardboard can persist for up to 24 hours.

What should you do?

Regardless of whether you receive the parcel from a courier or from a parcel locker, try to minimize physical contact with it to the maximum. In this case, it is best to stock up on disposable gloves and, if possible, open the package outside without carrying it to the apartment and discard the packaging immediately. After all, it is mandatory to wash your hands thoroughly with warm soapy water for at least 30 seconds and use an alcohol-based disinfectant to eliminate the risk.
