COVID-19: How Long the coronavirus lives on surface like cardboard, plastic, and steel

Coronavirus spreads via airborne droplets (an infected people coughs or sneezes, droplet carrying viral particles can land on someone else’s nose or mouth or get inhaled). Besides, a person might get the virus if touch a surface or object that has viral particles then touch their mouth, nose or eyes.

A study from The New England Journal of Medicine, the virus could live up 4 hours on copper, up to 24 hours on cardboard, and up to 3 days on plastic and stainless steel. (At 21 to 23 Celsius and 40% relative humidity). High temperatures (above 30 Celsius) and muggy weather might make the virus less contagious.

Wash your hands frequently and sanitize your personal belongings more often.
