[EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH OF THE HANTAVIRUS SURVIVAL IN COMPLEXES WITH ENVIRONMENTAL SUBSTRATES].
TLDR
Bovine serum albumin (BSA) solution (5-10%) was effective in the hantavirus elution and phosphate-buffer saline (PBS) pH- 7,2 was optimal for elution of specific RNA.
Survival of Coronaviruses in Water and Wastewater
TLDR
Coronaviruses die off rapidly in wastewater, with T99.9 values of between 2 and 4 days, while poliovirus survived longer than coronavirus in all test waters, except the 4°C tap water.
Ebola Virus Persistence in the Environment: State of the Knowledge and Research Needs
TLDR
The available evidence suggests that Ebola virus is inactivated at a rate more rapid than or comparable to those of typically monitored enteric viruses, and it is imprudent to dismiss the potential of environmental exposure as the dominant exposure route.
Coronavirus: occurrence, surveillance, and persistence in wastewater
TLDR
The present review focuses on the epidemiological surveillance of wastewater for coronaviruses, as in recent years these are increasingly causing global pandemics.
Persistence of Viruses by qPCR Downstream of Three Effluent-Dominated Rivers in the Western United States
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the detection signal of PMMoV was able to persist in wastewater discharges to a greater degree than human enteric viruses in effluent-dominated rivers.
Persistence of Low Pathogenic Influenza A Virus in Water: A Systematic Review and Quantitative Meta-Analysis
TLDR
A systematic review and quantitative meta-analysis of the environmental factors that affect the decay of low pathogenic avian influenza virus (LPAIV) in water suggests possible means of increasing the applicability of future studies to the natural environment, and evaluating the biological content of natural waterbodies.
Adenovirus, enterovirus and thermotolerant coliforms in recreational waters from Lake Guaíba beaches, Porto Alegre, Brazil.
TLDR
Although low concentrations of TC have been found, the occurrence of viral genomes in water samples was frequent and may pose a potential risk of infection for people bathing in these beaches.
Assessment of enteric viruses in a sewage treatment plant located in Porto Alegre, southern Brazil.
TLDR
Results showed that improvements in sewage monitoring and treatment processes are necessary to reduce the viral and bacterial load on the environment in southern Brazil.
Persistence of Ebola Virus in Sterilized Wastewater
TLDR
The persistence of Ebola virus spiked in sterilized domestic sewage is evaluated to demonstrate a potential exposure route to infectious Ebola virus via wastewater and emphasize the value of a precautionary approach to wastewater handling in an epidemic response.
Persistence of Avian Influenza Viruses in Lake Sediment, Duck Feces, and Duck Meat †
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that lake sediment may act as a long-term source of influenza viruses in the aquatic habitat, while the viruses may remain infectious for extended periods of time in duck feces and meat at low temperatures, allowing persistence of the virus in the environment over winter.

The ecology of enteroviruses in natural waters
TLDR
Viruses have been detected in the drinking water supply systems of a number of cities (including Paris and Moscow), despite the fact that those waters have received conventional water treatment cons...
The Survival of Human Immunodeficiency Virus in Water, Sewage and Sea Water
TLDR
Although HIV was more robust than herpes simplex virus when associated with the organic matter found in sewage, it was more sensitive than poliovirus, an enterovirus widely used as an indicator of the efficiency of water treatment processes, which makes it extremely unlikely that HIV poses any threat to disinfected water supplies.
Survival of human enteroviruses in the Hawaiian ocean environment: evidence for virus-inactivating microorganisms
TLDR
That the antiviral activity of the seawater was related to the growth activities of microorganisms was corroborated by the observed effects of added nutrients, a lower temperature of incubation, and the presence of certain antibiotics.
Long-term survival of human rotavirus in raw and treated river water.
TLDR
It is indicated that rotaviruses can survive for several days in raw and treated river water thus making recreational and potable waters potential vehicles for the transmission of rotavirus infections.
The effect of indigenous bacteria on virus survival in ground water
TLDR
Consistent trends were found in the ability of the viruses to persist in the presence or absence of bacteria, and significantly correlated with the decay rate of coliphage MS‐2.
Survival of human parainfluenza viruses in the South Polar environment
TLDR
Results indicate that the long-term survival ofParainfluenza virus in either environment for up to 10 weeks is unlikely and probably did not provide the source of infectious virus responsible for the midisolation outbreaks of parain fluenza virus-related respiratory tract illnesses observed in this population during the 1978 winter season.
Stability of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus in the presence of fomites commonly found on farms.
TLDR
Results indicated thatPRRSV is a fairly labile virus, but because of its duration of viability in water, contamination of drinking water and lagoons by PRRSV-shedding swine would serve as sources of virus to infect susceptible swine.
Stability of human enteroviruses in estuarine and marine waters.
TLDR
In situ studies on virus survival in free-flowing estuarine or marine waters showed that, although the viruses were more labile in natural waters than in the laboratory studies, they persisted for several months, in some cases during the winter months.
Survival and detection of rotaviruses on environmental surfaces in day care centers
TLDR
It is suggested that several agents, including rotavirus, can remain viable on contaminated surfaces long enough to be transmitted to susceptible children.
