Each parcel that's arrived over the last week, and there's been a few including the spokes, have been opened outside, the empty packages left outside, and the items ordered have either been washed, or cleansed. Also one or two things were left out in the sunshine where the uv light will kill off the virus after half an hour. Good job we've been having wall-to-wall sunshine for DAYS now!
Also, handwashing is a MUST.
No worries about the "unknown" spokes. Whatever brand they are, I don't know, but they are really nice. It's only for the front wheel, and they were cheaper than I could find plus the nipples were included. Free postage too, plus there were 40 in the pack.
Very pleased with them for a front unloaded wheel. They could well be fine for the rear wheel, but I'd rather buy a known brand knowing the tension you have to achieve on the drive side.
