Sometimes it means that an update is in the original post. Sometimes it means that an update from the original poster is posted inline in the thread. In this case there is an update in the OP.

Mining in the DRC!

Pretty sure it’s already here... not to say stop screening and what not. It’s important to slow down the spread.

No point screening the cargo. The virus doesn't survive longer than 4 hours if it's not inside a live viable host. But you really need to screen the people! They seem to have set up screening at 20 airports in the US so hopefully that's enough.

I'm just glad none of my shipments from China are affected. Seems FedEx hates Jared but not me lol

Well, Amazon dumped FedEx recently and plans to directly compete with them in shipping. Don't buy FedEx stock

Depends on what is being shipped. I mean obviously parking sensors are fine... but what if it’s contaminated food?

Can't transmit to a person unless it's from contact with an infected person or animal. The virus can't survive more than 2 hours on food items.

Source: a friend at the CDC so blame them if I'm incorrect lol

Amazon has already opened FedEx as an option again. They hurt them for the holidays and now they are back again. Amazon will however continue to grow their shipping and could possibly absorb someone with shipping resources to accelerate that.

Anyhow, its good they are screening but I bet we are still going to see issues here.

I heard it was spread by food items from a market... if that’s the case everyone must have ate those items right away then?

Who knows? I still wouldn’t trust food items from affected areas.

There are all kinds of rumors and speculation, and China isn’t being especially forthcoming with whatever it thinks it knows about it so far or even what it might be doing about it or the extent of the human casualties. This isn’t really the thread for all that, though. This is a shipping status update for a lidar defense product.

*Fedex is going to release freight out of Quarantine on Feb 2nd and 3rd. I'm expecting arrival on the 4th or 5th, but I'm sure customs will be backed up some. Some of the credit cards i have are expiring for pre-order. I have emailed those customers.
To assist in getting this thread back on the original topic........ ^ Here's Jag's Updated part of his 1st post of this thread.

Yes, I will be processing orders all weekend :)
More than likely your package was just heated up and opened to kill any virus. My brother says once in the USA, its heated again.
