The coronavirus, survives in air up to three hours and the surfaces up to three days. also survives on surfaces of plastic and stainless steel, which one often encounters in hospitals…..
Ερευνητές από τα πανεπιστήμια του Πρίνστον και της Καλιφόρνιας προχώρησαν σε μία ανακάλυψη που έρχεται να προσθέσει περισσότερες πληροφορίες σε όσα γνωρίζουμε έως σήμερα για τον coronavirus.
Specifically, Scientists, after inquiries by, concluded that the virus can survive in the air up to three hours while the surfaces up to three days.
Most worrying resulting from their research is that the coronavirus survives on surfaces of plastic and stainless steel, τις οποίες συναντά συχνά κανείς στα hospitals.
Marilyn Roberts, microbiologist at Washington University, stated: "We have not yet enough evidence to say that one can stick the coronavirus from contaminated objects".
Alongside, ο Βίνσεντ Μιούνστερ του Εθνικού Ινστιτούτου Υγείας στην Μοντάνα που συμμετείχε στην έρευνα, He told the MIT Technology Review:
"The stability of the virus in the air and on the surfaces can directly affect its transmission, As the particles must remain viable for a long time to be expelled from the host and received by another ".
The findings suggest that People may be infected with the virus through the air like touching contaminated surfaces and not only by direct contact with another person.
The researchers used nebulizer device to spray samples Covid-19 in air, creating a simulation of what happens when a carrier coughs.
They found that the virus survives in the air up to three hours.
even survive much longer on surfaces made of materials commonly found in hospitals.
For example The new coronavirus that survives:
- 2-3 hours Surface from plastic
- 2-3 hours Surface from stainless steel
- 24 hours in χαρτόνι
- 4 hours in bronze surface
Vincent Miounster NIH surveyed told the MIT Technology Review that the spread of the virus through the air probably explains certain incidents in which many people are infected by a single entity.
