4.3 Survival time of SARS-CoV-2

  • Viable SARS-CoV-2 could be detected in aerosol up to 3 hours after aerosolization, raising concerns on the possibility of viral transmission through aerosolization. 
  • Viable SARS-CoV-2 could only be as long as 2-3 days on plastic and stainless steel. Indirect transmission of SARS-CoV-2 through fomite is highly likely! We must always remain vigilant and be aware of our personal hygiene to reduce the risk of infection!
