- An experimental study on the stability of SARS-CoV-2 on critical personal protective equipment here “…viable SARS-CoV-2 in the presence of a soil load persisted for up to 21 days on experimentally inoculated PPE, including materials from filtering facepiece respirators (N-95 and N-100 masks) and a plastic visor. Conversely, when applied to 100% cotton fabric, the virus underwent rapid degradation and became undetectable by TCID50 assay within 24 h. “
- An observational study on aerosol-based transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in hospital rooms and community isolation facilities here“While SARS-CoV-2 is readily captured in aerosols, virus culture remains challenging despite optimized sampling methodologies to preserve virus viability.”
