The study shows how long the coronavirus survives on the skin

The new coronavirus survives on human skin five times longer than an influenza virus, 9 hours versus 1.8 hours. This is evident from the study published in the Clinical Infectious Diseases Journal. “The 9-hour lifespan of SARS-CoV-2 on human skin increases the risk of transmission through contact with the influenza virus and accelerates the pandemic,” said the Japanese researchers.

They examined the resistance of the virus on the skin of people who had recently died. Both the coronavirus and the influenza virus are “deactivated” within 15 seconds when using ethanol, which is contained in the hand gels. The longer the new coronavirus stays on the skin, the greater the risk of spreading it, according to the researchers. “Hand hygiene can reduce that risk,” they add.
