I saw another article saying that this is economic protectionism, by scaring people away from buying foreign goods, so they only buy made in China items.

(They had also said that China advised opening foreign mail outside, with gloves on)

I assume Canada to China mail is very fast, as weren't the reports that the virus only lasts 48 hours on cardboard.  Or did omicron change that, too?

You really shouldn't throw COVID in glass houses.

China: ZOMG Omicron from mail!
Also China: Come on over, let's ski!

There are some people in this world who would wholeheartedly agree with China regarding this ridiculous claim, yet deny the great possibility of the coronavirus beginning from a Chinese laboratory, despite there being Chinese scientists who have spoken out and mysteriously vanished, Fauci being caught lying under oath about his involvement in gain of function stuff, complete with evidence, and more.

IRONIC tag opportunity missed.

China is very efficient in reporting what they want to be true, hence the low number of deaths and few infections since Summer 2020. They're lying all the time.

Doesn't matter.  Blaming Trump is truthy.

I regret that I have but one smart to give to this post.   The PRC is built on lies and cheating, and should be a pariah among nations.

Facts:
1) Chinese claim is ridiculous.  Fomites have not been a major/primary of COVID infections since this began.
2) This virus did NOT originate in a Chinese lab in the way Trump and you seem to be inferring, ala direct engineering or intentional release.  The research performed there was not GOF, it didn't increase any viruses ability to infect humans at all, calling it such highlights one's absolute ignorance of the field.  Fauci didn't lie, Rand Paul is an ignorant moron.
3) Lab-oops theory is possible, aka - they found/isolated SARS-2 and were studying it and then someone screwed up and let it out.

What's the minimum infectious dose on Omicron?  A single virion?  Fomite transmission on express service mail should be possible.

I don't think there's a simple answer for how long the virus can survive in the environment. It depends on a lot of factors like temperature and humidity as well as the surface type. Some studies only looked for viral RNA (i.e. positive on a PCR test) while others actually tried to culture the virus. And it's usually not a sharp cutoff after X hours, rather a "10x reduction after Y hours" where you also have to consider how much of a dose you started with.

If it was a Fedex priority shipment which spent much of its time at low temperature (e.g. an airplane cargo hold) then it doesn't seem unreasonable for some virus to have survived the trip. Several of the other cases reported in China were associated with frozen shipments of food or other products, where the virus would degrade much more slowly.

Fomite transmission on express service mail has been theorized, but it's never been proven!  Are you mad?

That's a possibility.  I assumed that the package tested positive because someone with Covid breathed on it while opening it, and someone found a useful way to spin it
