Is it safe to handle a package from any place where the virus has been reported? 

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), yes, it is safe. The WHO says that the likelihood of an infected person contaminating commercial goods is low and the risk of catching the virus that causes COVID-19 from a package that has been moved, travelled, and exposed to different conditions and temperature is also low.

You can find facts and the latest information on the virus on WHO’s website
