Half Life of the Virus…

I have been reading and trying to understand an article about how long the virus remains active on various surfaces..

Back to the paper on https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMc2004973

Coronavirus, if I read it right, has a half life on Cardboard of around 4 hours, and Plastic of around 7 hours.

Therefore, I would be careful about removing shoes and touching the soles, and handling paper and post…
