COVID-19 – Fabrics/Plastic/Paper/Surfaces
How long does COVID-19 last on surfaces?
According to the World Health Organization, it is not certain how long the virus that causes COVID-19 survives on surfaces, but it seems to behave like other coronaviruses. Studies suggest that coronaviruses (including preliminary information on the COVID-19 virus) may persist on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days. This may vary under different conditions (e.g. type of surface, temperature or humidity of the environment)
Fabric – as of 24/4/2020 science researchers believe CV-19 can stay active on clothing from a few hours to a day.
Plastic (Pre-Paid Postpak Bags) 2-3 days
Paper (Satchels) 24 hours
