I saw an ad on here about 5 weeks ago for some hand made leather shoes ( Pearlfeet ). I thought they looked cool and comfortable , so I ordered two different pairs.

I know maybe this sounds paranoid as hell , but I'd rather be safe then sorry , with the conovirus thing going on over there. To be on the safe side , is there a time table of how long that virus can live without human contact? Like I said , I don't think I have anything to worry about , but I'd rather play it safe. What's your thoughts on this?

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Think I may just mist them down a little with some Lysol , and let them sit a week or so.

It can last about 9 days outside of the human body on surfaces. https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/www.livescience.com/amp/how-long-coronavirus-last-surfaces.html And they now say has a 27 day incubation period.

International shipments by sea are 18-20 days usually for my stuff I import, then you have at the dock, customs, etc. I thought the coronavirus was 14-day incubation but then I saw an article earlier about some lady that showed zero signs but infected 5 of her family.

Well shit , I think I'll just leave the shoes in the package a couple weeks just in case , and then still spray them down a little after I open. No use taking a chance , even if it's a super small chance.

The shipping on these shoes took a while , but I've ordered other stuff from China , which got here in like 7 days.

A virus requires a host to replicate, and a virus is neither dead nor alive, they just are entities. You should be fine

The Thunderfoot vid on this was very interesting, definitely recommend checking out.



Just shows the amazing difference simple precautions we can all take can potentially make e.g washing hands after touching door knobs etc.

Don't listen to these uniformed sheep, this virus is the most infectious and deadly we have ever seen, and just by bringing that package from China into your house I'd say there's a good 90% chance you will get the conoravirus. If I was you I would move out for a while and get some professional fumigation guys in to disinfect your house with a germ fogger, read the symptoms and be very wary if you should feel any. You may also need a hazmat suit or a big plastic bubble if you want to be extra careful to ensure you don't spread it to anyone else.

Yeah , no , for sure.....was gonna step up to that level. Or just buy a can of Lysol , and let them sit for a bit.

I know we joke about this shit , but in honesty , what if I did catch something from this package , and then spread it? I'm not as worried for myself , as I would be for the people that could possibly get it. That's why I'm trying to be safe about it. Why take a chance , when we can just take a couple minutes to make sure it doesn't spread? Which btw , 14 new people just got detected here in the states from Japan , and nobody knew about it.

I dunno , I don't think it's too funny as it's already killed over 2000 people , and that number keeps going up.

Thanks for the video man , but unfortunately since that video when they reported 700 deaths , we are now well over 2000 deaths. That's in one week. People keep making light of this shit and it's worse than what many think it is.

Defiantly take it seriously but also with common sense. I take everything light hearted upfront is just in my nature I’d also be the first to pack up my family and get them to safety if need be.
The past has shown us how dangerous these viruses can be such as the Spanish flu with estimate 20 - 50 million dead and the plague with estimates up to 200 million. With today’s international travel a spread is a lot quicker so if we see numbers higher than that I dread to think.

Oh man I agree. Iv'e said this before but other than doing what's in the vid in regards to hygiene, I think it's also a very good idea generally to have some dedicated supplies in the house so that if necessary you can keep away from crowded areas for as long as possible. Seemingly out of nowhere we now have a big outbreak in Italy.

The great thing about humans is that most have horrible cough etiquette, and viruses like this spread by coughing and breathing. But in theory your shoes could be covered in coronavirus and if you are just careful when opening them and simply washed your hands really good, or used alcohol hand sanitizer after touching them you would be fine. Your shoes aren't going to cough on you, or cough into their hands and grab a door knob.

However, the delivery driver could have coughed into his hand though before he touched your doorbell though......

Ask Bill Gates, he is the one funding those labrats that creating those viruses. Created in the uk by a English women and unleashed just a couple miles away from wuhan. Just another lab there.

News is not telling the truth about the deaths so far.. more then 1.5 million infected and over a 300k deaths.

With simpel words when it's your time to go then it's your time BUT with new shoes!!

Did it come thru the regular mail or one one the other shipping outfits like UPS, FedEX, or DSL? I have to wonder if the outside of the package had been sprayed with something when it came into the country. Maybe you should contact the shipping company and ask them, or customs?

Hey Reese , it came through just regular mail service. I'm headed to the store now to pick up some food for next week , and a fresh can of Lysol and am just going to mist them down , and put them on my work bench in the shop for a week or so. I think that'll do the trick on anything that might be attached. I think they are probably safe , but why take the chance?

Hmm I tell my family members and Biology/Anatomy & Physiology students that it has a mortality rate of ~ 2% in comparison to Ebola ~ 10%.

300,000/1,500,000 = 2%

Science... and math

Seeing as our grocery stores and department stores are littered with Chinese product, I think you'll be fine. Hence why we worry about airports, with warm bodied hosts.

Not to mention, viral infections are influenced heavily by the titer, or unit/volume of virus. Simply put, having sex with someone with HIV once does not guarantee you will get it (do not recommend), as you were probably (hopefully) exposed to a low titer. Whereas, sleeping with a partner repeatedly, or using needles intravenously (bypassing the body's initial defenses), your exposed to a much higher titer.

Its simple diffusion, the higher concentrated you are near an airborne virus, the more likely you are to get sick, which is why I always get sick going to the gallaria mall (the place is so huge, it is a small city).

Sorry I go overboard, I just love being a teacher, I'm an actual professor, not just a professor for a motocross videogame! I just happen to love motocross.
