How often do you clean your smartphone?
Researchers in Australia say the novel coronavirus can survive for nearly a month on some surfaces - including smartphones.
The virus remained infectious for up to 28 days on smooth surfaces like glass, stainless steel, or plastic, including smartphone screens and credit cards.
By comparison, the Influenza A virus survives only 17 days.
Scientists say it reinforces the importance of hand-washing and disinfecting to stop the spread of COVID-19.
