The following information about coronavirus is from Johns Hopkins University Hospital:

***The virus is not a living organism, but a protein molecule (DNA) covered by a protective shell of lipid (fat), which, when absorbed by the cells of the ocular, nasal or buccal mucosa, converts into aggressor/multiplier cells.
***Since the virus is a protein molecule rather than a living organism, it is not "killed", but decays on its own. The disintegration time depends on the temperature, humidity and type of surface on which it lies.
***The virus is fragile; the only thing that protects it is a thin outer layer of fat. That is why any soap or detergent is an effective antiviral, because the foam CUTS the FAT (that is why you have to rub so much: for 20 seconds or more, to make lots of foam).
Once the the fat layer is dissolved, the protein molecule disintegrates on its own.
***HEAT melts fat; this is why it is effective to use hot water (> 25 degrees Celsius) for washing hands, clothes and everything. In addition, hot water makes more foam and that makes it even more effective.
***Any solution containing more than 65% alcohol DISSOLVES FAT, including the external lipid layer of the virus.
* Listerine is therefore effective, as it is 65% alcohol.
***Any solution containing 1 part bleach and 5 parts water dissolves the protein, breaking it down from the inside.
***Peroxide dissolves the virus protein, but must be used undiluted, which is tough on the skin.
***Vinegar is not effective because it does not break down the fat layer.
***NO BACTERICIDE OR ANTIBIOTIC is effective. The virus is not a living organism like bacteria; antibiotics cannot kill what is not alive.
***NEVER shake used or unused clothing, sheets or towels., as that action throws the virus into the air for hours, raising the risk of inhalation.
The life of the virus on various surfaces is estimated as follows :
- 3 hours (fabric and porous surfaces),
- 4 hours (copper and wood)
- 24 hours (cardboard),
- 42 hours (metal) and
- 72 hours (plastic).
But if you shake the surface material or use a feather duster, the virus molecules float in the air for up to 3 hours, and can lodge in your eyes, nose or mouth.
* The virus molecules remain stable in external cold or artificial cold ( as in air conditioned houses and cars.)
* Moisture and darkness foster the stability of the virus. Dry, warm and bright environments will degrade the virus.
* UV LIGHT breaks down the virus protein. UV light can disinfect face masks. Be careful, as UV light also breaks down collagen ( protein) in the skin.
* The virus CANNOT penetrate healthy skin.
* NO SPIRITS, including VODKA, will kill the virus. The strongest vodka is 40% alcohol, and you need 65% to disable the virus.
* The more confined the space, the more concentrated the virus can become. The more open or naturally ventilated, the less concentrated the virus will be.
***You must wash your hands before and after touching mucosa, food, locks, knobs, switches, TV remote controls, cell phones, watches, computers, desks, TV, etc. And after using the bathroom.
***You must MOISTURIZE HANDS after so much washing , because the virus can penetrate tiny cracks in dry skin. The thicker the moisturizer, the better.
***Keep NAILS SHORT so that the virus cannot hide there.
