The stability of SARS-CoV-2 is similar to the original SARS virus. Studies by the National Institutes of Health, CDC, UCLA and Princeton University, published in The New England Journal of Medicine, show that the coronavirus-causing virus (COVID-19) is stable in aerosols and on surfaces for several hours to days.
The causative agent of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 was detectable in aerosols for up to three hours, on copper for up to four hours, on cardboard for up to 24 hours and up to two to three days on plastic and stainless steel.
The results of a study on the stability of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes COVID-19 disease, show that people can become infected not only with air droplets, but also by touching them through contaminated objects. Paper made of fibre is a very favourable environment for viruses of microscopic size.
This new anti-Covid paper containing virucidal filler immediately reduces SARS-CoV-2 so that even a very high concentration of the virus is immediately reduced in 10 minutes to 30%. In the next 20 minutes, the Covid-19 virus on the surface of the paper is completely destroyed.
The action of anti-Covid paper on bacteria is even more effective as they are thin immediately when in contact with the paper surface with an efficiency of 99%.
Fixed securely within the mass of paper fibres, the active substance works over an extended period of time and inhibits any virus that adheres to the paper. Stable and impervious to degeneration, the substance remains active throughout the entire life cycle of the product.
