How often do you clean your phone.

Seem like everybody is cleaning a whole lot more these days. But how about your phone. Here’s some new info.

Researchers in Australia say the novel coronavirus can survive for nearly a month on some surfaces – including smartphones. The virus remained infectious for up to 28 days on smooth surfaces like glass, stainless steel, or plastic – which includes smartphone screens and credit cards.

By comparison, the Influenza A virus survives only 17 days. Scientists say it reinforces the importance of handwashing and disinfecting to stop the spread of COVID-19.
