SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, was first reported to the WHO on 31 December 2019 after a slew of cases appeared in Wuhan, China. As of 13 March 2021, the virus has been detected in over 119 million people worldwide and has killed over 2.5 million.
COVID-19 is a respiratory illness and its primary transmission route is through person-to-person contact and through direct contact with respiratory droplets generated by an infected person.
Scientists now believe that the virus can remain viable on hard, non-porous surfaces, such as plastic or steel, for approximately three days, and on rough surfaces like cardboard for approximately one day.
