Wuhan Pneumonia
Hello Doctor I have a question about the Wuhan Pneumonia! So, I got a box of biscuits as a gift from Hong Kong. My friends bring it back to U.S. by plane. Since the Plane has lots of Chinese, my parent is afraid of the virus and want me to throw it away. My question is, would the virus go through the air and get onto the biscuit? (These no confirm case from my friend’s plane yet) The biscuit is inside a box with a cover and also it does have an individual cover on every biscuit. Which means, there should be 3 cover ( one for biscuit, one for the box and also the box itself ) If it still might get the virus, can I frozen it or I have to throw it away. Thanks for answering
