Dr.Rosoklia: Coronavirus stays in the air for up to 3 hours
Dr. Gorazd Rosoklija, a professor at Columbia University in New York, has published the latest findings about the Corona virus’s survival time in plastic, metal, cardboard and in the air.
Until now it was thought that in order to infect Corona by air, you should be in direct contact with an infected person for at least 10 to 20 minutes at a distance of less than 1.8 meters.
But the latest study does not say so. According to the latest reports, the virus stays in the air for up to 3 hours, which may answer questions about why it spreads so easily.
“The virus stays in the air for 3 hours, on cardboard 14 hours, on metal and plastic surfaces for 3 days,” Professor Rosoklia wrote, adding a link to the study.
Air drops should come in contact with your face. The ACE-2 receptors that are the entry point for this virus are found in the eyes, mouth, especially the tongue. And because we have them in the lungs, kidneys, intestines, the virus also goes into those organs and they multiply in them, ”says Professor Rosoklia.
He adds in comments that the virus is new and therefore not known from the beginning.
