Corona virus, the mail, and QSLing ?

Worth repeating folks ...  If you've been wondering where your mail could have absconded to - this might be the answer. E-QSLing remains the better alternative.

Mail exchange between Kazakhstan and China has been suspended.

Director of the Department of Advertising and PR at Kazpost Dilara Zarlykova on her Facebook page said that the postal exchange of auto, air and rail links between China and Kazakhstan on the initiative of the Chinese postal administration has been canceled, writes zakon.kz.

Due to the cancellation of the postal exchange, Kazpost suspended the acceptance of all types of postal items to China, as well as countries to which mail arrives in transit through China (Bangladesh, Brunei, Bhutan, Burma, Cambodia, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nepal, Laos, North Korea, Thailand,  Sri Lanka, Philippines, Taiwan), she wrote.

Here, the Kazakhstanis received an answer to the question, but what will happen to those parcels that have already been sent?

"Those ordered are on the way. Even if they don't return it, Aliexpress will return the money"?said Dilara Zarlykova.

"Everything will reach. Departments work as usual, parcels sent by China earlier via transit countries are now arriving. As soon as China Post works, all the packages will arrive in KAZ.

Some of the packages are also located at Khorgos, which is closed to prevent the spread of the virus among the people who work there,"?added Saul Mukasheva, an employee of the advertising and PR department at Kazpost, to complement her response.

Recall that the World Health Organization (WHO) said that when receiving parcels and letters from China, it is impossible to become infected with a new coronavirus.

According to recent studies, coronaviruses do not live long outside the body, so there is no risk of infection, the organization explained.
