Be COVID-19 aware – need to know
A recent paper in the Journal of Hospital Infection entitled “Persistence of Coronaviruses on inanimate surfaces and their inactivation with biocidal agents,” [104(2020)246-251] provides some information of practical use. The authors conclude that Human coronaviruses can remain infectious on inanimate surfaces for up to 9 days. Surface disinfection with 0.1% sodium hypochlorite or 62-71% ethanol significantly reduces corona virus infectivity on surfaces within 1 minute exposure time. They anticipate a similar effect against SARS CoV-2.
