    Quick clean with a household spray cleaner. Many actually state they kill Corona Virus on the back

    If I recall, the cold and Flu are both considered forms of "corona" virus. This is a different strain and may not be covered by that statement as those cleaners couldn't possibly have been tested against COVID-19, labels printed and on your store shelves already.

    Doesn't Samsung manufacture in Korea? There was discussion of supply chains on a recent Android Central podcast...

    I still doubt it's an issue either way. Even the hardiest Corona Virus can only survive on non living items for up to 9 days.

    I doubt that the virus can survive for long in a sealed box, which is then placed in another sealed box, & then placed in either a ship (which would take longer to get here than the incubation period) or the unpressurized cargo hold of a plane.

    For most Americans, lack of knowledge of basic science.

    I guess it depends on WHICH hold they're put in (main cargo where passengers would normally be or where luggage normally) but I don't think many cargo planes are unpressurized these days.

    You may want to include the British in that. I remember a teacher at school who, when the projector was switched on and nothing happened, suggested that we all wait for a few seconds to give the electricity time to travel along the wire.

    Possibly. And when the apple fell on Isaac Newton's head, at first he blamed the tree...then I guess he had a change of heart and decided to rewrite the laws of physics instead, and invent calculus as a side project.

    It was a female teacher, and no, she was serious.

    The coronavirus is a normal common cold...but COVID-19 is a different strain with little information about it.

    This is true. In fact, many people in the US deny science altogether.

    How long can Caronavirus survive on surfaces?

    https://news.trust.org/item/20200228215640-n07fz

    The Food and Drug Administration this week said it has no evidence that COVID-19 has been transmitted from imported goods, but the situation remains "dynamic" and the agency said it will assess and update guidance as needed.
