    Do we need to be worried about buying prebuilt coils, etc? Since they are assembled in China, etc, I was curious.

    Thanks

    In principle, no; the virus should not be able to remain viable on inert surfaces long enough to be a concern with items shipped from China.

    That said, there have already been reports of shortages of pre-built coils in some places because manufacturers aren't making them and shipping them as fast as they used to.

    Good, thanks. Yes I was just reading up on this about a shortage. I better check and get some more coils now then.

    You may want to think about some RBAs as back-ups too.

    What about juice - and not even necessarily from China..US juice. Can juice be contaminated? Makes me want to go back to making my own....

    Also, I think about how often my hand is near my mouth...... I am refilling like it's a biohazrd - cleaning everything with alcohol, washing hands, refill, wash, wipe with alcohol again. Ugh... It's exhausting ;-)

    PG and VG are both alcohols, and PG is known to have antibacterial and antiviral properties, so I doubt there's much worry with it, but someone would have to do lab tests using the actual virus to be really certain.
