Hello, I want to ask here because there are so many confusing news that I have found. In one of the media there is a mention that the corona virus can only last for 3 hours in the air / surface. In other media there is a mention of 1 day, 3 days to 9 days Actually, how long does the corona virus actually last outside the host? Thank you in advance for the answers given by the doctor

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Basically the ability of the virus to survive outside the human body is very dependent on many factors, for example, what objects are attached by the virus, air temperature, humidity, sun exposure, and so forth. Indeed research on this matter is not really complete (considering this virus is also a new virus). But here are some things that are already known:

 This virus spreads mainly through droplets (liquids released from the airways when coughing or sneezing), these droplets fly into the air and can last up to 3 hours in the air before finally falling down (can fall to the ground or stick to the surface of certain objects) . Viruses can survive on surfaces made of copper for up to 4 hours Viruses can survive on surfaces made of cardboard for up to 24 hours Viruses can survive on surfaces made of plastic and stainless steel for up to 2-3 days. Until now it has not been known exactly how long the virus survives in the sun, but it is estimated that the virus will die faster if exposed to direct sunlight and also higher air temperatures (above 30 degrees Celsius). This does not apply if the virus has entered the human body, so sunbathing or drinking hot water will not help kill the virus that has entered the body.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
