Specialists of Rospotrebnadzor said that the new coronavirus is almost completely loses its infectivity at temperatures from plus 30 degrees Celsius. It is reported by Telegram-channel stopmanager.of the Russian Federation.
In Rospotrebnadzor noted that a coronavirus is deactivated at a temperature of 70 degrees Celsius. Low humidity and the sun’s rays contribute to destruction of the virus.
How to write “Rambler”, previously the French scientists from the University of AIX-Marseille suggested that the new coronavirus can withstand prolonged exposure to high temperatures.
The researchers had infected kidney cells of African green monkey strain isolated from a patient from Berlin. Cells were loaded into the vials representing two different types of environment: one “clean” and the other “dirty” with the protein of animal origin to simulate biological contamination in real samples such as swab of the mouth.
According to scientists, the process of heating has led to an apparent loss of infectivity, but the infection was still possible. However, the samples are heated to 92 degrees Celsius for 15 minutes did the virus completely inactive.
