How Long Does The Coronavirus Lasts On Surfaces?

2020-03-21 02:54:281 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

The deadly Coronavirus is rapidly spreading to every corner of the world. According to the CDC, the virus is spread primarily through "person-to-person" contact with a cough or sneeze. Even if you're not in contact with someone who is contagious, you might still come in contact with the virus. According to Business Insider, the virus can live in the air after someone coughs or sneezes for up to 3 hours. If someone coughs or sneezes into their hands and then touches a surface, it could become contaminated. According to experts, the virus can live on doorknobs, light switches, desks, counters and other smooth surfaces for up to 3 days. Experts say it is vital to wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and avoid touching your face. They also recommend routinely cleaning commonly used surfaces, like doorknobs and your phone, with disinfecting wipes.
