Coronavirus can survive up to 28 days on some surfaces — but heat makes a difference: study – National | Globalnews.ca

Researchers found that the virus was still detectable 28 days later on glass, plastic bills, stainless steel, vinyl and paper currency that was heated to 20C but only lingered for up to 9.1 days on cotton cloth materials. That number dropped to seven days for stainless steel, plastic notes and glass that was heated to 30C, and three days for vinyl and cotton cloth. “At 40C, virus recovery was significantly reduced” to up to 48 hours, the study read, including all surfaces except cotton cloth, which saw no traces of the virus after 24 hours.
