The Covid-19 virus, according to a new study, sticks around on various surfaces:
On plastic: After eight hours only 10% of the virus was still there, but it didn’t become undetectable until after 72 hours.
On stainless steel: The numbers began plummeting after just four hours, becoming undetectable by about 48 hours. 
On copper: Undetectable by eight hours.
On cardboard: Undetectable by 48 hours. 
The take-home message: Thoroughly wash your hands after touching surfaces that anyone else might have touched — or don’t touch them in the first place.
