The research team from CSIRO, the Australian National Science Organization, recently published a paper in the Journal of Virology, saying that sars-cov-2 (the virus that causes covid-19) remains on the nonporous surface for longer than expected. The team said the studies were conducted under controlled laboratory conditions and in the dark, and also demonstrated the sustainability of sars-cov-2. “Our results show that sars-cov-2 can remain infected for a long time on the surface,” said Debbie eagles, deputy director of the Australian Center for disease prevention. Therefore, we should take various measures, such as washing hands regularly and cleaning the surface. ” < / P > < p > the team isolated the virus and created a solution called an artificial mucus, which contained viral particles in concentrations similar to those in infected patients. They put droplets of the mixture on a range of different surfaces, including plastic and paper money, stainless steel, cotton and vinyl. They also tested glass, such as those used in ATMs, checkout counters and cell phones. < / P > < p > the team’s goal is to find out whether the virus is still infectious when exposed to temperatures of 20, 30 and 40 degrees Celsius (68, 86 and 104 degrees Fahrenheit). They sampled the material at five different points in time, ranging from one hour to 28 days. < / P > < p > their results show that the virus can survive at least 28 days at 20 degrees Celsius – similar to the original reported data on SARS virus. One of the important findings of this study is that sars-cov-2 lasts much longer on glass than expected, which means it can stay on the screen for a longer time. “This study may also help to explain the significant persistence and spread of sars-cov-2 in cool environments with high levels of lipid or protein pollution, such as meat processing facilities,” explained Trevor drew, ACDP director Global Tech
