Establish an automated robotic facility to open packages and sterilize them then re package and send them with a separate transportation system. Charge a small extra fee.

Oxirane https://en.wikipedi...wiki/Ethylene_oxide
"At room temperature it is a flammable, carcinogenic, mutagenic, irritating, and anaesthetic gas." [8th of 7, Feb 24 2020]


       Why open the packages ? There are processes that will efficiently sterilize packages relatively non-invasively, depending on the contents and the nature of the packaging.   

       A hyperbaric chamber filled with oxirane <link> will deal effectively with most biocontaminants.

       Because there might be Coronna on the phone cable that's inside the packaging from the packaging worker's sneeze.

       Oxirane will infiltrate the package and oxidise or de-nature any viral proteins witn ruthless efficiency.

       I suspect that Coronavirus won't survive more than a day or two outside a body anyway.

       Depends what's in the package, then ...

       The wifey received a package (t-shirt) from China yesterday... had a nice little "Sterilized" sticker on it. So, either this is Baked, or they're at least making the claim.

       The stickers sound like they'd be inexpensive, reassuring, and completely ineffective...

       You stay away from my bear repellent sticker!

       Ok here's the thing. I spoke with a friend who's an expert on import from South East Asia and who's wife is a pharmacist. The virus breaks down after three days in the dry. And the problem is not in the merchandise but in the people at manufacturing and at supplies. Somebody needs to prepare the raw materials package the murchandice ship it and put it in and transport it. All of that is done by Manuel and his team.

       Second thoughts?

       Yes; the inexpensive, reassuring, and completely ineffective stickers sound a better idea than ever.
