There are folks in India who are cancelling their subscriptions to newspapers for fear of catching COVID-19 from them.
A doctor on an NDTV COVID-19 Q&A Show dismissed the risk:
So far, it has not been found that it will remain on these surfaces (the things that are being couriered or even the newspapers) - that the virus will remain for a long period of time. So, I think we should not worry about this issue; that if we are getting something from Amazon or even the newspaper that it will be infected. The virus will not be stable on these surface; and therefore nothing to worry about.
(He goes on to recommend keeping distance from the deliverer, and washing hands after receiving the products.)
Note: The source might have a bias because the TV station is a subsidiary of the Times of India, a newspaper.
What is the risk level?
