COVID-19 Likely To Survive On Surfaces For NINE (9) Days

One question asked a lot is “How long can coronavirus survive on surfaces?”…

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says it may be possible for a person to become infected by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose or eyes.

An analysis of 22 earlier studies of similar coronaviruses, including Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) published online this month in the Journal of Hospital Infection, concluded that human coronaviruses can remain infectious on inanimate surfaces for up to nine days at room temperature. However, they can quickly be rendered inactive using common disinfectants, and may also dissipate at higher temperatures, the authors wrote. It is not yet clear, however, whether the new coronavirus behaves in a similar way.

How To Kill Coronavirus

A 10% bleach solution will kill a coronavirus on contact.

Just mix 1 part bleach with 9 parts water in a regular spray bottle.

Clean all flat surfaces, door handles, stair railings, and light switches EVERY day.  More often if you have a high traffic area.
