Coronavirus WHO

I’m sure you’ve all heard about the 2019-nCoV (aka Coronavirus) outbreak in China, since it has been all over the news for the past month. A lot of you have been contacting us with questions about this situation, so we thought a quick post was in order to clarify a couple of points.

First of all, there is no risk of contagion via postcards or mail. Here’s an official response to the question from the World Health Organization:

Q: Is it safe to receive a letter or a package from China?

A: Yes, it is safe. People receiving packages from China are not at risk of contracting 2019-nCoV. From previous analysis, we know coronaviruses do not survive long on objects, such as letters or packages.

This situation has had a heavy impact in the postal world though, with many postal operators having stopped accepting mail to China due to cancelled flights and widespread delays. For this reason, Postcrossing has temporarily stopped giving out Chinese addresses. We will continue monitoring the situation, and when things return to normal, the algorithm will resume giving out Chinese addresses for everyone to send postcards to.

Doing this really saddens us, as we realize this is a difficult period in which Chinese postcrossers most need support. So we hope everyone will join us in the comments below, sending the Chinese Postcrossing community and their families some encouraging thoughts and good wishes. 中国加油!

Since many countries have re-established their mail routes to China, Postcrossing has also started giving out addresses in China again. Keep an eye on your mailbox, Chinese postcrossers! 🇨🇳

Am I the only one who thinks it is strange to stop sending to China while the officials from WHO claim there is no danger? I do not get this decision :-/ sorry

yirobinson, Netherlands
Some Dutch and Belgian meet-up participants signed in my cards in which I wrote 'Kom op Wuhan en China' (Come on Wuhan and China), 'Samen tegen coronavirus' (Fight coronavirus together) and '武汉加油!中国加油' (Come on Wuhan and China). Many thanks to their support indeed.

@xapphirea Much of the mail we send and receive everyday is transported in normal passenger flights. With many of these flights being cancelled, it's difficult for postal operators to maintain their services... thus the temporary suspension.

Russian Post did not stop, postal service with the People's Republic of China, even air service is valid, only with restrictions.
Our doctors help their Chinese colleagues, and the number of sent medical masks has exceeded 2,000,000,000!
Hold on, if we help, I hope this will all be over soon, with minimal losses.
As the saying goes: "how does not kill us, makes us stronger!"

Dear Chinese postcrossers! Amazing postcards with bright and beautiful stamps come from your country. My son and I even started to study a little bit of characters. And we hope to continue as soon as everything is resolved safely! We sincerely wish you to quickly overcome this damn virus and return to your previous life. Please believe that everything is possible! Belarus with you! Polina and Ivan.

Дорогие китайские посткроссеры! Из вашей страны приходят удивительные открытки с яркими и красивыми марками. Мы с сыном даже начали чуть-чуть изучать иероглифы. И надеемся продолжить, как только все разрешится благополучно! Мы искренне желаем вам поскорее преодолеть этот чертов вирус и вернуться к прежней жизни. Пожалуйста, верьте, что все возможно! Беларусы с вами! Полина и Иван.

I think there ia list of countries who not send to China. Just only stop these countries. Like Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, Kazahstan etc. We are still able to send and aupport them.

meiadeleite, Portugal
@Exploradora73 The lists we've seen so far are incomplete, and everyday we've been receiving new reports of more countries suspending mail services to China. Sometimes these suspensions are not even announced — mail is just being refused at post offices, which causes frustration and delays.

surfclub66, United States of America
Just to clear up some misconception, today LiveScience.com specifically said that coronaviruses in general can last up to 9 days on surfaces, but that they can easily be killed with cleaners and hand sanitizer. It is the flu virus which only lasts 48 hours. This is why China has taken the steps of decontaminating money and outgoing mail.

That being said, stay safe, Chinese postcrossing friends! Thank you as always Postcrossing Team for keeping us informed.

My heartfelt wishes go out to all Chinese people and all people of the world who are affected or will be by this Covid-19.

Press release from February 12, 2020: "Swiss Post no longer accepting letters and parcels addressed to China in its branches

Due to the coronavirus, many international flights to China have been cancelled. This is why deliveries of letters and parcels from Switzerland to the People’s Republic of China are only possible to a limited extent for the time being. Swiss Post is no longer accepting any letters or parcels addressed to China in Swiss Post branches or branches with partners until further notice."

I am very sorry about this and hope that the situation will return to normal soon. In the meantime, I wish postcrossers from all over the world good health!

I'm so sorry to hear this. Much love to our Chinese Postcrossing friends! ❤️ Since Postcrossing is not giving out Chinese addresses, largely because of mail transport issues, does that mean that Postcrossers in China are not being given any addresses outside China?

@CindyMc Mail within China and sent from China is still working as normal in most places. Naturally, some delays are to be expected, but Chinese postcrossers are able to send postcards abroad, as far as we know.

Maybe here‘s the right place to ask them to update their postal addresses in Chinese, too! I think our postcards will better find the right place with a Chinese written address. Most of the expired postcards are to China - Hopefully a lot more postcards to China will find their way to the postcrossers as soon Postcrossing is giving out China addresses again!

I feel the warmth from your blessing to China. I understand postcrossing move at this time.

This is what I saw on the official website of China Post. Some countries or regions suspend or delay sending mail to China (incomplete statistics):
①Stop receiving all kinds of mails (international letters, parcels and EMS) to mainland China: Spain, Romania, Croatia, Georgia, Serbia, Jamaica, Singapore, Panama, Germany, UAE, Zimbabwe, etc

②Stop receiving letters and parcels to mainland China: Greece and Denmark

③Suspension of transit mail business (international letters, parcels and EMS) from other countries to mainland China: U.S.A

④The time limit for all kinds of mail (letters, parcels and EMS) sent from mainland China to Hongkong, Mongolia, Macao, etc. and from Japan and South Korea to mainland China is affected.

For reference.

Thank you so much for such warm-comments, i heard you.
By the time I updated this situation to you, almost every province of China (W/O HuBei) is safe, with no more that 10 new confirmed cases reported.
Life goes on, the whole chinese society is back to normal.
No need to be worried about isolated the cards from China. And,in China, now, the domestic postal service is still available.
Wish to see your guys in postbox, soon.
Stay strong and Stay together with WuHan.

Be patient, everyone - especially those people who are enduring isolation & quarantine because of the spread of this dreadful disease - you are all in our thoughts. We have some specialist doctors in Melbourne who are working hard to find a vaccine, but it will take time. I am sorry to add this, but I love puzzles, & I have realized (with a puzzling brain) that the letters "coronavirus" can be re-arranged to form the word "carnivorous". This might be a warning to us all, to be careful of what we are eating now.

Please notice that Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan is not equal to China!

As my opinion, I think the epidemic situation of the Wuhan pneumonia will not be get well soon easily. In fact, the situation of the hygiene in mainland China is very bad. Meanwhile, most of the Wuhan people has left before the China government block the transport between Wuhan and other cities.

Dear fellow Chinese postcrosser, my thoughta are with you every day. I am sorry, that we have to stop mailing to you for some time. Is is very devastating, as this project builds bridges to connect people from all over the world. On the other hand, writing a postcard and not being able to send it out to China isn’t not only depressing, but also a waste of resource.
I hope, I will be able to send soon postcards to China again and until this happens, my dear Chinese friends, be assured that we are all with you and don’t forget about you.

China, I feel very sorry for you and the people you lost.
I have never thought the virus could be spread bij mail. For as a nurse we had to run around the hospital everytime we had been with an isolated patient to get rid of the virus.
It's over 55 years ago:)
So hugs for everyone!

I am saddened by the situation in China and can imagine how scary it must be to many. I do agree that suspending postcards from China is needed as they dont know the time frame that the virus remains on surfaces. But I do feel we should be sending lots of postcard to China in support. Can there be an initiative put into place to request 5, 10 or 15 addresses in China at one time?

teamug, Germany
Dear Chinese postcrossers,

please be safe. Our thoughts are with you - hopefully life will return to normal soon.

Please be aware - this is from the site of "business insider":
The outbreaks of both the Wuhan coronavirus and SARS likely started in Chinese wet markets.The close proximity of shoppers to stall vendors and live and dead animals in wet markets makes them breeding grounds for zoonotic diseases.
„Governments must recognize the global public health threats of zoonotic diseases,“ Christian Walzer, the executive director of the Wildlife Conservation Society’s health program, said in a statement. „It is time to close live-animal markets that trade in wildlife, strengthen efforts to combat trafficking of wild animals, and work to change dangerous wildlife consumption behaviours, especially in cities.“

Protect people's lives - by protecting animals.
Peace and love to all of you.

I don't know if anyone else does this, but I keep a book with all my addresses of sent cards written in it. I've looked at mine and have a few recently to China. I will send them an RAS card. That way it's not an official and no need to worry about a time frame. If it gets there it does. If it's late it won't matter. We could all do this with people we have sent cards to in the past. Just to say hello and that we are thinking of them. Even if we all just pick one person then the Chinese post should be able to handle that. It's worth a try I suppose.

Thank you for your information! And yes, February flights by AirAstana to China from Kazakhstan have been cancelled, so probably there are no mail opportunities for now.
And to Chinese postcrossers, stay strong, all the best to you! ❤️

"Postcrossing has temporarily stopped giving out Chinese addresses"

Even to other Chineses? There are sure Chinese Postcrossers which marked the option "Check if you would like to (also) send and receive postcards to and from your own country." on their settings, and, since mail within China is still being delivered normally, as the reply to @CindyMc says, I don't see any problem if Postcrossing kept giving Chinese addresses to other Chineses.

Shame on the Postcrossing moderators for banning postcrossers in China! Why not ban Postcrossers in my country 🇳🇴 - after all, 🇳🇴 is a country way up on the top of the list in terms of sick people vs population. I don’t care anymore - the postcrossing moderators are so arrogant!

Best wishes to all Chinese Postcrossers as well as everyone affected by the virus in all countries. Also, thank you Postcrossing team for looking out for everyone, as I am sure it was a tough decision to make regarding mail in and out of China. Safety and good health to all!

Postcrossing is a wonderful opportunity to send well wishes throughout the world and it is a tremendous act of kindness. We, as people, need kindness, compassion, and connection - - thank you Postcrossers! Hopefully soon everyone will be able to participate. China you are in our thoughts, wishing you better days ahead. Peace!

dreamfighter, Finland
As a Chinese living in Europe, I thank you so much for praying for my motherland. I was in China when the virus broke out, I could feel how tense the situation was, and how amazing every person is, especially doctors. That's what Italy may face currently. Therefore, I think it's the time to pray for Italy and say "加油" (go for it) to the amazing people in Italy. Combating with virus and time is hard, but China starts to see the light after the darkness, so will Italy and the whole world. Hang in there, we are always with you!

News from Italy: I live in Lombardy, the region most affected by the coronavirus outbreak in our country. I can reassure you that the postal service is working and your postcards are coming to/from us, please be patient if it takes longer than usual! Today Poste Italiane, the Italian postal service provider, published the following notice in their website (here: https://www.poste.it/gamma/lettera.html):
"In view of the ongoing epidemiological emergency and its repercussions on air flights, routes and means of transport and on internal and foreign logistics processes, shipments of parcels and correspondence addressed abroad may be slowed down".

The USA has stopped all incoming planes from Europe with the exception of England. I believe some cargo planes are still allowed in.

I am happy to hear that the Coronavirus is under control in
China. I wish everyone who is ill, a speedy recovery and those who have lost loved ones. My sincere sympathy to you.
I hope that this too shall pass soon so that we can resume our post crossing with our brothers and sisters in China.
Take care.

I'm praying for the whole world to be rid of coronavirus soon! Chinese Postcrossing Friends, we love you and can't wait to resume sending your postcards! Stay strong, and remember that we are all in this together ❤

@meiadeleite: Wouldn't it make sense to postpone the expiring day for postcards to 70 or 80 days now? Because now also many flights from and to Europe especially Germany to the world are cancelled.
Dear All Postcrosser stay calm, healthy (if possible), happy and give each other hope.

moony-wroclove, Poland
The Polish Post stopped sending anything abroad. I turned ny account i to inactive.

MerlinM, Germany
@meiadeleite I do have another question. Is Germany or are other countries now expelled from receiving postcards? I guess so. I asked for some addresses the last three days and did not receive a German one. Which is weird as normally every third or forth is a German. I don't mind if you do this because you try hard to keep postcrossing going while this crisis happens. I am just curious to know. I know that some postcrosser set their account into inactive too. But I will not stop for asking for addresses even if the postcards will travel longer. Because postcards always gives a good feeling and help to be happy even in hard times.

maroussia, China
Very weird indeed that postcrossing stopped giving Chinese addresses as the postal system here has never stopped working, and all incoming mail has been delivered all through the epidemic.

Maybe the mail incoming from abroad has been delayed by the restrictions to international flying, but I do not think mail travels on passenger flights and many cargo flights have kept running...

In these hard-to-live-through circumstances, it is always very nice to receive a postcard....

Will postcrossing continue as usual? Some countries like Norway, Sweden and Belgium have restricted or temporarily forbidden intercontinental mail. Flights are generally limited.
