The virus responsible for Covid-19 can remain infectious on surfaces such as banknotes, phone screens and stainless steel for 28 days, researchers say. The findings from Australia's national science agency suggest SARS-Cov-2 can survive for far longer on surfaces than previously thought.
The virus is most commonly transmitted when people cough, sneeze or talk. But experts say it can also be spread by particles in the air, as well as on surfaces such as metal and plastic.
