  • Most infections start with water droplets, tiny globes of water 5 microns or less in size. That’s much smaller than a human hair, which is 60 to 120 microns thick. An average cough, however, can produce as many as 3,000 droplets and a single sneeze can make up to 40,000, according to multiple studies cited in a 2009 World Health Organization report. A droplet’s size determines where it goes after being expelled. Gravity forces larger ones to the ground. The researchers concluded that the virus could remain airborne for up to 3 hours post aerosolization.
  • The coronavirus lasted about four hours on copper.
  • Research suggests that the coronavirus can exist for up to 72 hours on stainless steel. Stainless steel is commonly used everywhere by everyone. It is used in public transport, restrooms, faucets, etc.
  • Coronavirus can live up to 72 hours on plastic also. That’s a special concern because many shared items are made of plastic and may not be sanitized often enough or completely enough. Your phone, doors, switches, play equipment are the best example.
  • Coronavirus can last on cardboard for up to 24 hours. Food products packaged in cardboard could also be a risk.
  • A virus can exist as long as four days on glass, depending on location and temperature. Items such as cellphone screens, mirrors and inside glass doors can also support the virus.
