WASHINGTON, DC / ACCESSWIRE / March 28, 2020 / Covid-19 keeps spreading and causing concern. Mostly due to the fact that there is still no absolute evidence of how it spreads. Data on how long the virus can linger on different surfaces varies wildly also.
The New England Journal of Medicine published a study that found that the virus was still detectable on copper for up to four hours, on cardboard for up to 24 hours, but up to 72 hours on plastic and steel. Mind you - this testing was done in controlled laboratory conditions. But it seems to me our forefathers were really on to something when the doorknobs and handles used to be made from copper!
