A review on coronavirus survival on impermeable and porous surfaces
Porous materials are deemed to be relatively safer for mitigating the spread of COVID-19 via fomite transmission because of their typical geometries, which accelerates the thin-film evaporation on porous surfaces and thereby making them lesser susceptible to virus survival.

Absence of virological and epidemiological evidence that SARS-CoV-2 poses COVID-19 risks from environmental fecal waste, wastewater and water exposures.
- Medicine, BiologyJournal of water and health
The human infectivity dose-response relationship of SARS-CoV-2 is unknown, thereby making it impossible to estimate evidence-based quantitative health effects assessments by quantitative microbial risk assessment methods requiring both known exposure assessment and health effects assessment data.

Background: There has been a belief in and strong thought about the existence of a relationship between meteorological parameters and the spread of SARS-CoV-2. Many studies have been conducted but…
Indirect Virus Transmission via Fomites Can Counteract Lock-Down Effectiveness
- MedicineInternational journal of environmental research and public health
It is demonstrated that efficient contact tracing at a high level of incidence can stabilize daily cases independently of the transmission route long before effects of herd immunity become relevant and the results point to the particular importance of hygiene measures during mobility lock-downs.

Sewage as a Possible Transmission Vehicle During a Coronavirus Disease 2019 Outbreak in a Densely populated Community: Guangzhou, China, April 2020
- MedicineClinical infectious diseases : an official publication of the Infectious Diseases Society of America
This investigation has for the first time pointed to the possibility that SARS-CoV-2 might spread by sewage management, especially in densely-populated places with poor hygiene and sanitation measures, such as urban slums and other low-income communities in developing countries.

The evidence of indirect transmission of SARS-CoV-2 reported in Guangzhou, China
- MedicineBMC Public Health
The aim of this study hypothesized possible modes of SARS-CoV-2 transmission and how the virus may have spread between two family clusters within a residential building in Guangzhou, China and found an epidemiological association between family No.1 andfamily No.2, in which patient D was infected through touching an elevator button contaminated by snot with virus from patient A on the same day.

Modeling the stability of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) on skin, currency, and clothing
Virus stability on skin demonstrates the need for continued hand hygiene practices to minimize fomite transmission both in the general population as well as workplaces where close contact is common and confirms the inverse relationship between virus stability and temperature.
