The novelcoronavirus, known as COVID-19, may be able to survive on surfaces for up to nine days, studies have found, and that may include your beloved phone or iPad. Think about all of the different things you touch throughout the day, from light switches to remote controls to bathrooms doors to gas pumps. You get germs on your hands, you use your phone, then you go wash your hands later but the germs are still on your devices. All of the bacteria picked up during your day-to-day activities end up on your devices, and odds are, you don’t clean them often or well enough.
According to theCenters for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one of the best ways to protect yourself is to wash your hands after being in a public place, and after coughing or sneezing. The CDC estimates 80 percent of all infections are transmitted by hands, and our smartphones and tablets have basically become an extension of that.
