cell phone may also contain coronavirus

In times when the coronavirus is there, the most important thing is to destroy the virus on your cell phone, but previously circulated advice is now obsolete. In addition to washing hands well, it is very important to avoid or disinfect surfaces contaminated by frequent contact. The Smartphone is one of them. There is a risk that, for example, by holding a virus-infected doorknob, mouse, cup, etc., you transfer this corona virus to your mobile phone, even if you have thoroughly washed your hands with soap before touching the device.

According to some researchers, smartphones are at least involved in the transmission of the virus to corona patients. Caution is advised with viruses according to research because, for example, the coronavirus can persist on the cell phone for a few days, it was discovered even after 72 hours in a US study of plastic and metal surfaces.
