Frequently Asked Questions
How long does the virus survive on surfaces?
It is not certain how long the virus that causes COVID-19 survives on surfaces, but it seems to behave like other coronaviruses. Studies, including preliminary information on the COVID-19 virus, suggest that coronaviruses may persist on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days. This may vary under different conditions, e.g. type of surface, temperature or humidity of the environment. If you think a surface may be infected, clean it with simple disinfectant to kill the virus and protect yourself and others. Clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, or nose. Source: View Source
