If you have Dettol, put a glug on a piece of kitchen towel and that will kill the virus. Bleach will also do but it is a bit viscous on your skin. Ideally you should also be spraying/wiping your Amazon parcels, I open them and carry the packing out to the bin, clean door handles as aboveĀ  then wash my hands being careful not to touch my face in the mean time. I leave the contents of the parcel for 24 hours before handling again. (according to US research the virus can stay alive for weeks on hard surfaces but only 14 hours on cardboard as the virus dies when it dries out).

If I see the contents are shrink wrapped, I treat at the same time as the Amazon packaging, and leave the contents on the floor.
