The virus responsible for Covid-19 can remain infectious on surfaces such as banknotes, phone screens and stainless steel for 28 days, researchers say.
The findings from Australia's national science agency suggest SARS-Cov-2 can survive for far longer on surfaces than previously thought.
The virus is most commonly transmitted when people cough, sneeze or talk.
But experts say it can also be spread by particles in the air, as well as on surfaces such as metal and plastic.

easy to prove 1000,s in small rooms in uni,s with virus ,rooms should be full of covid on surfaces
dont clean tesco for one day on a saturday go in afterwards should find the viruys everywhere

most infected town in germany was invaded by the countries to scientists to try and find covid on hard surfaces and they couldnt find any anywhere

I think the clue is that they chose "bank notes" as the top of the list Plain

Might as well push the agenda at every available opportunity...

Are you both saying that you think this research is not credible?

I hope you're right.

Seems it can't survive more than
A few hours on copper.

Get them pennies out and chuck away
the notes.

They reckoned some other viruses could lie dormant for months.

You would have expected this research to be carried out before now.

is that a silver lining

Maybe we shouldnt be looking at a vaccine for catching covid but focusing more on a vaccine on preventing you from PASSING it on...

Something that 100% neutralises any virual load that's usually secreted in ones coughs n sneezes or spittle

Then again I can see the pharmaceuticals being dead set against this...cos it could be seen as a possible cure for the common cold

Oh I'm sure it has.
These people pick and choose which data they use to suit their agendas.

They link to a paper which came out in April detailing similar findings. It’s not entirely clear how important a few virions are in infection by comparison with airborne spread but probably not very.

If even half the ways they claim this virus spreads were true we would have all had it about 5 times by now.

Agree. There has definitely been a lot of fearmongering, which I really dislike as a public health measure, although I do understand why the more pessimistic messages were pushed out early on.

Like not banning incoming flights from virus hot spots and allowing Cheltenham to go ahead?

Those weren’t really public health messaging decisions. I think serious epidemiological investigation of where U.K. cases came from didn’t suggest that single events like Cheltenham or football matches (Liverpool v A. Madrid always gets a mention) mattered nearly as much as a steady influx of people from high prevalence areas, mostly in Europe. So yes, somewhat agree on how we dealt with incoming flights. I think banning them would have been very hard but quarantine would have been an option, albeit one that I suspect would still have been railed against by many as authoritarian at the time.

No, they just sent out the strongest message possible to the public.

And the wrong one.

I’m a bit concerned that we’re currently agreeing on several topics Crips, so am thankful for your aggressive attempts to pretend otherwise through selective quoting here.
