The coronavirus survived in the cruises of Princess Cruise ships for 17 days after the departure of sick passengers. This conclusion was reached by the experts of the CDC Disease Control and Prevention Center, who studied the cabins of passengers with COVID-19 on the cruise liners Diamond Princess and Grand Princess. This is written by CNBC.
Coronavirus was found on various surfaces in the cabins of Diamond Princess liners in Japan and Grand Princess in California, including those where passengers lived without the symptoms of COVID-19. CDC specialists will now disinfect their cabins to permanently destroy the virus.
At the same time, scientists previously believed that coronavirus can live up to three days on plastic and stainless steel. A new study increases the lifespan of a virus outside of humans by almost five times. Now scientists are going to conduct new studies of the life expectancy of the virus outside the human body in various, including temperature, conditions.
