CoV can survive on
surfaces and air
“SARS-CoV-2 can still survive for hours
and in some cases days, outside a host”
SARS-CoV-2 was detected on the copper surface after
four hours, and on the cardboard surface after 24 hours.
Whereas it was still able to be detected up to 72 hours
later on the stainless steel and plastic surfaces.
The researchers concluded that the virus could remain
airborne for “up to 3 hours post aerosolization.”
How to clean to kill off coronavirus
Avoid using a spray to apply disinfectant on potentially
highly contaminated areas
as it may create splashes which can further spread
the virus. Also, alcohol-based disinfectant is
flammable, do not spray it into the air.
The best way to disinfect surfaces is UVC light.

Ultraviolet light is part of the light spectrum, which
is classified into three wavelength ranges:
What is germicidal ultraviolet?
Germicidal UVC light (253.7nm)
is proven to stop Bacteria and viruses (all types
of viruses including Flu's, Colds, Corona Virus/
SARS, Measles and German Measles.)
UV-C light is germicidal-i.e., it deactivates the DNA of bacteria, virus and
other pathogens and thus destroys their ability to multiply and cause
disease. Specifically, UV-C light causes damage to the nucleic acid of
microorganisms by forming covalent bonds between certain adjacent
bases in the DNA. The formation of such bonds prevent the DNA from
being unzipped for replication, and the organism is unable to reproduce.
In fact, when the organism tries to replicate, it dies.
