I'm not a medical person but I did have open heart surgery at The Mayo Clinic in 2004. I'd like to know if I can become infected with the virus via PRODUCTS MANUFACTURED IN CHINA? How long is the virus active and can it survive on 'things?' I'm concerned because many of the products we use and consume are made with components made in China. I understand that a virus that is resistant to treatment or a vaccination can wipe out the entire human race. Please advise and thank you. This is a real concern for me.
