Survival of Coronavirus on Surfaces

The answer is no, however, this is not completely confirmed that Covid-19 is an air-borne disease.

These coronaviruses don't remain in the air for a longer time. These viruses are expelled in respiratory droplets when the infected person sneezes or coughs and they remain in the air until the respiratory droplets fall down on the surface or ground.

The only possible way of transmission into your body is when you touch the surface with respiratory droplets and then touch your own mouth, nose or eyes. Another way is when a coronavirus infected victim sneezes or coughs on your face.

Please do note that these coronaviruses can survive at least 24 hours on any surface in our surroundings at room temperature, and they have the survival time of more than 4 days on human waste. The only advice here is to keep your surroundings clean and disinfect it with home disinfectants.

Wear gloves and face masks during working hours and remove them after completion, wash hands with sanitizers having disinfectants, after that only you can do things like eating, touching your face with your bare hands, etc.

One more advice I would like to give you is to stay away from animals. Don't bring them too close to your face or body even if you are a deep animal lover. Take good care of your animals but stay away from them, maintain the least distance.

I am answering questions related to covid-19 or SARS-CoV-2 or we can say coronavirus infection. Read all of them for your own knowledge and self-protection. Don't forget to share them with your near and dear ones.

Stay healthy and tuned.
