Most estimates of the incubation period for COVID-19 range from 5 to 7 days, but it can be as long as 14 days. If you develop a high fever, cough, and so on, you should contact the health authorities. They will decide whether diagnostic tests are necessary.
The likelihood that an infected person will contaminate commercial items is low, and the risk of contracting the virus that causes COVID-19 through contact with a package that has been handled, transported and exposed to different conditions and temperatures is also low. In addition, it is difficult for the virus to survive in a carton box.
You should follow the usual hygiene advice. For example, use some kind of gel, and air out the taxi frequently. If you pick up a passenger who is coughing a lot and has a fever, the most likely situation is that they have the flu or a cold.
It is advisable to avoid unnecessary travel to affected areas. See the updated map.
If you do finally decide to travel, the following preventive measures are recommended in order to reduce the risk of infection:
Avoid close contact with live or dead domestic or wild animals and their secretions or excrements in markets or on farms.
Avoid eating animal products (undercooked or raw meat or food).
People over 65 years of age and those with other health problems may be at risk of contracting the disease more seriously. These people should have their travel assessed by a health professional from an international vaccination centre.
