Coronavirus Could Live On Your Phone

🤔Did you know that Coronavirus could live on your phone for nine days — here’s how to clean it

📌Before you pick up that smart device and refresh your social media feeds to reveal the latest coronavirus news: beware. The dreaded virus could be festering on your phone for long periods.

📌According to German researchers, coronavirus can live on an inanimate surface like metal, glass or plastic — as in, all of the materials used to make phones — for up to nine days.

📌The study suggested using a solution that contains 0.1% sodium hypochlorite (bleach), or 62% to 71% ethanol (a key ingredient in most hand sanitizers) within one minute to clean their devices. Apple recently told customers that they can safely use Clorox disinfecting wipes and 70% isopropyl alcohol on their products’ screens. But, people shouldn’t use aerosol sprays, bleaches or abrasives. Cleaners shouldn’t be sprayed directly onto the device, rather applied using a soft, lint-free cloth.
