The new coronavirus is primarily a respiratory illness. It typically spreads via airborne droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. You can get sick too if the droplets carrying viral particles land on your nose or mouth or eyes. According to a new study, the new coronavirus can live on surfaces “for hours to a day.” Researchers also say smooth, nonporous surfaces are better at carrying viruses in general.

-Handrails, handles, or doorknobs
-Subway pole
-Stairwell banister
-Any animals
