Summary The novel human coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has become a global health concern causing severe respiratory tract infections in humans. Human-to-human transmissions have been described, probably via droplets but possibly also via contaminated hands or surfaces. In a recent review on the persistence of human and veterinary coronaviruses on inanimate surfaces it was shown that human coronaviruses such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) coronavirus, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome… Expand

TLDR
The most important active ingredients that can deactivate viruses on the surfaces were reported here and it is hoped that these active ingredients will have the same effect on COVID-19. Expand
Understanding air and water borne transmission and survival of coronavirus: Insights and way forward for SARS-CoV-2
TLDR
Particulate matter is omnipresent with variable concentrations, structures and composition, while most of the surfaces are also covered by PM of different characteristics, and the role of PM, its chemical constituents and surface characteristics is appreciated and suggested for better understanding of transmission and survival of this novel coronavirus. Expand
Which Are the Main Surface Disinfection Approaches at the Time of SARS-CoV-2?
Among many guidelines issued by the World Health Organization to prevent contagion from novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), disinfection of animate and inanimate surfaces has emerged as a key issue. OneExpand
Preventive Guidelines for Disinfection and Microbiological Processes During Handling of COVID-19 Samples
TLDR
The guidelines in this article present the procedures for disinfection and microbiological processes that should minimize the risk of infection to the laboratory personnel as the highest concentration of SARS-CoV-2 has been observed in the respiratory specimens compared to the non-respiratory specimens. Expand
Inactivation of Human Coronavirus by FATHHOME’s Dry Sanitizer Device: Rapid and Eco-Friendly Ozone-Based Disinfection of SARS-CoV-2
TLDR
Results confirmed that FATHHOME’s device is suitable for rapid decontamination of SARS-CoV-2- from worn items, frequently touched items, and PPE including N95 FFRs, face shields, and other personal items. Expand
Status of Novel Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and Animal Production
TLDR
Potential approaches to keep animal products processing units and staff safe from SARS-CoV-2 infection are proposed and some strategies to improve animal production quantity and economy are proposed. Expand
Virus survival in evaporated saliva microdroplets deposited on inanimate surfaces
TLDR
High virus survival in dry saliva deposited on surfaces, under a wide range of RH levels, can have profound implications for human public health, specifically the COVID-19 pandemic. Expand
Layer-by-Layer Nanocoating of Antiviral Polysaccharides on Surfaces to Prevent Coronavirus Infections
TLDR
Antiviral polysaccharides provide the ideal opportunity to combat the pathogen via pharmacotherapeutic applications and provide a green chemistry pathway to virus eradication since these molecules are primarily of biological origin and can be modified by minimal synthetic approaches. Expand
Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) in the environment: Occurrence, persistence, analysis in aquatic systems and possible management
TLDR
A more complete overview of the present status of SARS-CoV-2 and its consequences in aquatic systems is provided. Expand
How can nanotechnology help to combat COVID-19? Opportunities and urgent need
TLDR
The use of nanotechnology for COVID-19 virus management is discussed by the development of nano-based materials, such as disinfectants, personal protective equipment, diagnostic systems and nanocarrier systems, for treatments and vaccine development, as well as the challenges and drawbacks that need addressing.

Persistence of coronaviruses on inanimate surfaces and their inactivation with biocidal agents
TLDR
Human coronaviruses can persist on inanimate surfaces like metal, glass or plastic for up to 9 days, but can be efficiently inactivated by surface disinfection procedures with 62–71% ethanol, 0.5% hydrogen peroxide or 0.1% sodium hypochlorite within 1 minute. Expand
Transmission of SARS and MERS coronaviruses and influenza virus in healthcare settings: the possible role of dry surface contamination☆
TLDR
Emerging data suggest that MERS-CoV also shares these properties, including the need for hand hygiene and personal protective equipment to minimize self-contamination and to protect against inoculation of mucosal surfaces and the respiratory tract, and enhanced surface cleaning and disinfection in healthcare settings. Expand
Potential role of hands in the spread of respiratory viral infections: studies with human parainfluenza virus 3 and rhinovirus 14
TLDR
The relatively rapid loss of HPIV-3 infectivity on hands suggests that their role in the direct spread of parainfluenza viruses is limited, and further reinforces the view that hands can be vehicles for rhinovirus colds. Expand

TLDR
Although the viruses identified may have been noninfectious, health care workers should be aware that SARS coronavirus can contaminate environmental surfaces in the hospital, and fomites should be considered to be a possible mode of transmission of SARS. Expand
Survival characteristics of airborne human coronavirus 229E.
TLDR
The pronounced stabilizing effect of low temperature on the survival of HCV/229E at high RH indicates that the role of the environment on the survive of viruses in air may be more complex and significant than previously thought. Expand
Survival of influenza viruses on environmental surfaces.
TLDR
Observations suggest that the transmission of virus from donors who are shedding large amounts could occur for 2-8 hr via stainless steel surfaces and for a few minutes via paper tissues, suggesting that under conditions of heavy environmental contamination, the Transmission of influenza virus via fomites may be possible.

TLDR
The findings are consistent with person-to-person transmission of this novel coronavirus in hospital and family settings, and the reports of infected travellers in other geographical regions. Expand
