Hey all,  looking for opinions on what you would do. I’ve got two reels coming from China right now. They’ve co ya fed me and said they were gonna be delayed due to the outbreak.  Am I a complete idiot to not cancel them? Could something like that travel they the mail system? I’m planning on canceling for the well being of my family.  But the selfish side, or better put, “my true love to fishing”. Lol!! Is hesitating on canceling. What are your thoughts.  I’m gonna do the right thing of course but just interested to hear everyone’s opinion about it. Thanks.  
cl 

be ready with rubber gloves and a full can of Lysol,spray the box outside then open it and spray the contents,,,i'd also open the box outside,not in the house.

just my $1.50.

Let is sit in boiling water for few days.

 

And then file warranty claim, By the time you get a new reel vaccination for fishing reels will be widely available.

If it's fishing tackle, let it sit in a sunny place for a few days. If you're ordering a Chinese mail-order bride, quarantine her for a few weeks.

Spray with bleach 5:1 if you are that concerned. Same as the rodent feces in your sheds garage and basement. You havv bff e a bigger risk of Hanta Virus from those places than a box from China. Is Walmart taking those precautions?

Why take a chance

The chance of any contamination is extremely low but that said,hard to argue your point

Probably low risk......but with a 13% rate of critical condition hospitalizations....I'd say pass.

 

How good could an alibaba reel be anyway.

I think Coronavirus in Alibaba reels is the least think to be worried about.

Do as you will.  For me it would be like worrying about lighting strikes or winning the lotto.

 

Have you ever heard of anything...ever...spreading via packages? 

 

Even toilet seat fears and the idea Europeans gave Native American's small pox via contaminated blankets has largely been debunked.  

 

Viruses die if left in the open without a living host.  Amazon value would be crashing vs. hitting records if the investment community though there was even the tiniest risk at all that EVERYTHING they sell was a Deadly Flu Bomb.  All their **** is from China.  

 

That should actually be your canary in a coal mine.  If Amazon stock start to plummet...then you know there's real risk being factored in.  ...Cause if you can get sick from a box from China...they are in deep ****.
