Corona prevention: How long does corona virus remain on surfaces

Door handles, trains, bathrooms or literally any surface you touch are loaded with germs and viruses, and more now when the epidemic of the coronavirus spreads. People are terrified and rush to buy disinfectants, wash hands, masks and medicines to protect themselves and take strict measures to keep areas free of coronary viruses.

However, before you start protecting yourself from infection, there is one thing you should know. How long does the coronavirus remain on the surface?
How does coronary virus infection spread? The coronary virus is primarily a respiratory infection that spreads in the air (through coughing, sneezing, mucus and other drops) and according to CDC guidelines, a person can also become infected if the surfaces touch with virus deposits, and then touch the eye, mouth or nose.

Researchers say the new CORONAvirus for COVID-19 is likely to persist on the surface for 'hours' extending to one day. Several studies have also compared the prevalence pattern of the new coronavirus with other viruses from the same family, such as the Coronavirus of SARS, which can remain on the surface for up to nine days. Therefore, although there is no conclusive evidence of the survival of COVID-19 bacteria, age depends on a number of factors in place such as temperature, weather and the type of surface on which they multiply.

What surfaces are most susceptible to viruses?

Scientists say the most commonly used commodities are those likely to be a place to contact viral infections that hatch, which means they contain banknotes, coins, change, mobile phones, laptops and handles.
Surfaces such as door handles and table tops are more likely to catch and hold viruses for a long time. In comparison, other porous surfaces, such as hair, tissue and money, do not help viruses survive as long as they contain fine holes that can hold microbes and stop their spread and transmission.

While there is no scientific answer to this, there is some evidence to suggest that temperatures between 20-30 degrees Celsius dry the fatty layer of the viral cell, killing it. Thus, ambient temperature and underlying weather conditions also have a role to play. If this is indeed true, it supports the fact that coronary viruses act as a respiratory disease that occurs in winter.

While you can't prevent viruses from spreading to the point of contact, what one can do is continue to properly cleanse. Whether it's your bathroom, table, chair handles, door handles, or sterilizing surfaces.

As a rule, you should consider reducing the number of times you touch these germs (avoid exchanging banknotes, if possible) and sterilize screens and phones regularly even if you have a habit of taking your phone to the bathroom, where the risk is high.
When you can't clean, or when traveling, wash your hands and sterilize them when possible to reduce your risk of infection. More importantly, stop touching your eyes, face or mouth a lot.
