How Long Does the Coronavirus Survive on Surfaces?

The coronavirus that causes covid-19 is mainly transmitted from person to person. If you touch a virus on a surface or object and then touch your mouth, nose or eyes, you may catch the virus. The coronavirus can survive for hours to days on surfaces such as countertops and doorknobs. How long it can survive depends on the material on the surface.

Here is a guide to the duration of the coronavirus:

What You Can Do

In order to reduce the chance of infection or transmission of coronavirus, all surfaces and articles in the home and office should be cleaned and disinfected every day. Ozonated water is the best-known green sanitizer. Use an ozone sanitizer spray, wait for 30 seconds and wipe. After you visit the drugstore or supermarket, or bring in takeout food or packages, wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm water. Then sanitize your hand with ozonated water.
