In a new scientific study targeting, it was found that the virus can stay in the air for up to three hours, while it can survive on surfaces such as plastic and stainless steel for up to about three days.
This study, which was published in the scientific journal (medRxiv depository), also indicated that the virus may remain on copper surfaces for a maximum of four days, and cardboard for a period of approximately 24 hours.
In another study published in the scientific journal () and targeting the virus, the researchers noted that the emerging corona is similar to other types of corona viruses, which means that it is able to survive on metal, glass and plastic surfaces for a maximum period of 9 days.
The study added that it is possible to eliminate the virus by using sterilizers that contain 62-71% ethanol.
In another study published in the scientific journal (The Lancet), it was found that the newcomer would live in the airways in the human body in some patients for a period of up to approximately five weeks.
In order to reach these results, 19 doctors analyzed the data of 191 patients in China, and found that the shortest period of presence of the virus in the sick human body was 8 days, while for some it extended to 37 days.
