  • The virus is a protein molecule (DNA) covered by a protective layer of lipid (fat), which can be absorbed by the cells of the ocular, nasal or buccal mucosa.
  • It is not killed, but decays. The disintegration time depends on the temperature, humidity and type of material where it lies.
  • The virus is very fragile; the only thing that protects it is a thin outer layer of fat. That is why any soap or detergent is effective, because the foam CUTS the FAT. That is also why you have to rub so much: for 20 seconds or more, to make a lot of foam.
  • By dissolving the fat layer, the protein molecule disperses and breaks down on its own.
  • HEAT melts fat. That is why it is good to use hot water for washing hands, clothes and everything. In addition, hot water makes more foam.
  • Any mixture with alcohol over 65% DISSOLVES ANY FAT, especially the external lipid layer of the virus.
  • Any mix with 1 part bleach and 5 parts water directly dissolves the protein, breaks it down from the inside.
  • NO BACTERICIDE OR ANTIBIOTIC is useful. The virus is not a living organism like bacteria; antibodies cannot kill what is not alive.
  • The virus is THOUGHT to survive:
    • between 3 hours on fabric and porous surfaces,
    • 4 hours on copper and wood,
    • 24 hours on cardboard,
    • 42 hours on metal, and
    • 72 hours on plastic.
  • The virus molecules remain very stable in external cold, or artificial as air conditioners in houses and cars.
  • They also need moisture to stay stable, and especially darkness. Therefore, dehumidified, dry, warm and bright environments will degrade it faster.
  • UV LIGHT on any object that may contain the virus breaks down the virus protein.
  • The virus CANNOT go through healthy skin.
  • The more confined the space, the more concentration of the virus there can be. The more open or naturally ventilated, the less.
  • Wash your hands before and after touching mucosa, food, locks, knobs, switches, remote control, cell phone, watches, computers, desks, TV, etc. And when using the bathroom.
  • Moisturize dry hands from so much washing them, because the molecules can hide in the micro cracks. The thicker the moisturizer, the better.
  • Keep NAILS SHORT so that the virus does not hide there.

For Healthcare workers:

  • Take shoes off before entering your home.
  • Spray alcohol top and bottom of shoes.
  • Also, wipe down cell phone, glasses, keys, work utensils, and computers.
  • Throw away any receipt or papers.
  • Go to where you can take your clothes off and put them in the washer.
  • Don’t touch or sit in any chairs or beds.
  • Go to the bathroom to take a shower, brush your teeth, etc.
  • Now you can hug your family!
