Incubation period seems to be 3 to 4 days for this strain (time of exposure to symptoms) not 1-2 as previously reported. People have the potential to infect others from a day before symptoms develop to seven days after they develop.
Environmental aspects: How you get it from surfaces and other objects. This is the result of some experiments carried out at a prominent lab in the U.K. 19 Viruses survived on hard non-porous surfaces (e.g., stainless steel counter, plastic washing-up bowl) for up to 72 hours but only small quantities were detectable beyond 48 hours. In contrast, virus was recovered from soft porous items (e.g., pajamas, handkerchiefs, tissues, magazines) for up to 24 hours, but only small quantities were detectable after 12 hours.
