According to Professor Günter Kampf from the Institute of Hygiene and Environmental Medicine at the Greifswald University Hospital, the risk is particularly high in hospitals.

He said: “In hospitals, these can be door handles, for example, but also call buttons, bedside tables, bed frames and other objects in the direct vicinity of patients, which are often made of metal or plastic.”

Professor Eike Steinmann, head of the Department for Molecular and Medical Virology at Ruhr-Universität Bochum added: “Under the circumstances, the best approach was to publish these verified scientific facts in advance, in order to make all information available at a glance.”

Based on their study, which focused on the SARS and MERS coronavirus strains, the pathogens can survive more than a week outside of the host’s body.
