Coronavirus can survive on surfaces such as metal, glass and plastic for a number of days. This means that all surfaces that may have come into contact with, or nearby to an infected person, are cleaned with proper anti-bacterial wipes. Ensure you are using special antibacterial cleaning wipes, otherwise you will be contamitating the wipes and spreading the virus around even more.

Surfaces that should be wiped and cleaned regularly include those within the healthcare sector, all toilets and sinks, classroom tables and those in public areas. Also, cleaning your phone screen with alcoholic wipes twice a day, which is frequently forgotten, and touches both your hands and your face.

Cleaning all of these areas and more can drastically reduce the transmission of COVID-19.
