Coronavirus remained active in the cabins of the ships of the company Princess Cruise for 17 days after the premises are left ill passengers, said experts of the Center for control and prevention of diseases of the CDC.
Experts have conducted studies of cabin passengers from COVID-19 on cruise ships Diamond Princess and the Grand Princess, reports CNBC. The virus was found on various surfaces in the cabins of ships Diamond Princess in Japan and the Grand Princess in California, including cabins for those passengers who did not have symptoms of infection. For the final destruction of the virus you will need a complete disinfection of the cabins.
We will note, earlier scientists called the lifespan of a virus on plastics and stainless steel for three days. Now there are new studies of the lifespan of the virus outside the human body.
