Hello, I got information from a health worker at my workplace that the Covid-19 Virus will die when exposed to ambient temperatures (27C – 32C). Is that true? If so, do activities such as room temperature regulation, washing clothes with warm water, heating a package with a hair drier help kill the virus?

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for the question

Corona virus is a single strain of RNA virus positive, encapsulated and not segmented. Coronavirus belongs to the order Nidovirales, Coronaviridae family. This virus causes a disease known as COVID-19 with symptoms of mild to severe pneumonia and allows local transmission between humans.

If exposed to this virus in large quantities at one time, can cause disease even though the body's immune system is functioning normally. People with weak immune systems such as the elderly, pregnant women, and other conditions, the disease can be progressively faster and more severe.

Coronavirus is sensitive to heat and can effectively be activated by disinfectants containing chlorine, lipid solvents at a temperature of 56 ℃ for 30 minutes, ether, alcohol, perioxysiacetic acid,
non-ionic detergent, formalin, oxidizing agent and chloroform. At the temperature you mentioned above, it cannot turn off this coronavirus.

As a precaution it is advisable to always wash your hands with soap and running water, or at least by using alcohol-based disinfectants, keep a distance from others, and not gather in one room, and do independent isolation.

That's all, hope you can help.
Wassalam.
