Recommendations and information from the WHO (World Health Organization) for the prevention of covid19
Take care of your health and protect others through the following measures: Wash your hands often with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer or soap and water. Why?

One study found that the COVID-19 virus remained viable for up to 1 day on fabric and wood, up to 2 days on glass, 4 days on stainless steel and plastic, and up to 7 days on the outer layer of a medical mask. Another study found that the COVID-19 virus survived 4 hours on copper, 24 hours on cardboard, and up to 72 hours on plastic and stainless steel. Hence the importance of cleaning surfaces with SPRAYMEDIC® Antiseptic Alcohol.
