Coronavirus causes significant distruption for postal operators

The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) continues to have a temporary suspension of the guarantee on Priority Mail Express International destined for China and Hong Kong, effective from 10 February, as a result of widespread airline cancellations and restrictions into those areas. 

As a consequence, and “starting immediately,” USPS said it can no longer accept items destined for China, Hong Kong and Macao “until sufficient transport capacity becomes available.”

Customers may see delays in mail and packages to and from China. China Post says delays should be expected in mail transport, processing and delivery.

Here are just some of the national postal services which have announced mailing issues as a result of the coronavirus:
